About Us

STEAMsport, Inc. is a 501-C3 non profit organization with the mission of providing science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) exposure, engagement and education to youth living in underserved communities in a fun and competitive environment.

Our goal is to break the cycle of generational poverty through accessible and effective STEAM programming that will open the doors to secondary education and STEAM related careers. 

The STEAMsport Story

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 that barriers to quality STEAM education in underserved communities included money, transportation and equipment. For this STEAMsport, Inc. brought mobile STEAM education to public housing communities, local community centers, urban schools and Boys and Girls Clubs.

We have now served over 2,300 students providing over 9 STEAM programs, hosting 3 STEAM competitions, 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 next generation of great American technologist. 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.”   – Greer Powell

“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.”– Myraid Osorio

“Thank you so much for giving our children experience that they would’ve never been able to experience without this opportunity. Jordan talked my ears off last night bout being a co-pilot. Learning how to to calculate a flight course. Jordan hates math but he loved this. Now Jordan wants to become a pilot. He said its something about the air that makes him feel free. I just want to thank you again and again for being there for by boys. For being that male figure in their lives that they can look up to. “- Romona Boyd
