About Us

STEAMsport, Inc. provides Science, Technology, Arts, Engineering, and Math (STEAM) exposure, education, and competition specifically focused on youth and children living in and around underserved communities.

Our mission is to break the cycle of generational poverty through effective STEAM programming leading to secondary educational opportunities and STEAM careers.

History

STEAMsport, Inc. began as a group of 5 students from an underserved community wanting to compete in the First Lego League Robotics Competition in 2010. As the students began to  apply hands-on learning, their interest and attitude toward STEAM increased along with their math and science grades. STEAMsport, Inc. continued to reach out to students in underserved communities, realizing student barriers of knowledge, transportation and equipment. For this STEAMsport, Inc. bring mobile STEAM education to public housing communities, local community centers, urban schools and Boys and Girls Clubs.

We have now served over 700 students, 5 STEAM programs, hosting 3 STEAM competitions, 2 STEAM business hack-a-thons, and 2 computer coding and entrepreneurship summer camps.

STEAMsport, Inc. believes that by making quality STEAM programming available to everyone we can develop the future leaders of American Technology. It's for that reason that all of STEAMsport, Inc. programs are provided free of charge.

My son has participated in the STEAMsport program for 4 years and it has increased his self confidence in coding, working effectively with a team, networking skills, learning the importance of volunteering, and internship opportunities. He is a tall guy but after his involvement in this program he walks with his head held higher. He has transferred  the experience and exposure  to his academic performance in  high school. We appreciate you and the work you do with  students, they are our leaders for tomorrow.

STEAMsport has been such a GREAT program for both of my children.Angel has been in the program since he was in elementary school, and he has enjoyed competing in FLL robotics, Sea Perch, FTC, and coading. Now he is in 9th grade. The program helped him to get into The Westminster Schools. Anthony has been in the program for a long time too, as a "shadow" because he was young. This now is his second year competing in FLL Robotics and Sea Perch.
