Summer.org is a pending 501(c)(3) non-profit based in Oakland, California. We are committed to bringing state-of-the-art technology and the requisite curricula to the 21st Century classroom via project-based STEM education. With the help of grants and corporate sponsorship, students will have a chance to learn and experience trend-setting and open source technology developed by today’s technologists and scientists.
Only 18% of high school seniors are rated as science proficient and 33% as math proficient (Digest of Education Statistics, 2009).
All kids are equal! Whether they live in the inner city or the suburbs, they should be exposed to the same cool STEM courses, giving them more career choices to choose from or the inspiration to invent their own occupation. It is important as parents and professionals to make an effort to groom our kids for a better future. We all contribute differently but this is our way to do good. We don’t have all the answers, but we are wired as problem solvers, we will find a way! Along the way, we have found a lot of parents, educators, and philanthropists with the same passion, and that fuels us to work harder!
