Our Programs

Our Mission

To increase opportunities for children to have exposure to innovative and experiential science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education programs independent of their geography or socioeconomic status. By engaging the next generation of STEM professionals at a young age, we can help produce a stronger and more competitive workforce ready to face the challenges of tomorrow.
Get Involved


Interested in innovative, community driven STEM classes targeted for kids 5-8? We’re launching STEMtastics this April to address growing interest in science, math, and engineering from our youngest scientists!!



Last year’s inaugural STEMbridge class was a great success. This year, we’re working to grow the program to more schools in the Austin area. More details including application information coming soon!

What is it?

We’re working with various schools and organizations in the Austin area to improve Computer Science and STEM opportunities. If you’re interested in learning more, please contact us.




STEMbridge 2015 funded by KDK Harman Foundation in $56,000 grant!!

We are very happy to announce that STEMed Labs’s STEMbridge program was funded as part of Akins High School T-STEM Academy’s summer programming by a grant from the KDK Harman Foundation. The grant sum is $56,000. Thank you KDK Harman!

This represents a milestone for Akins High School and STEMed Labs in a partnership that will ensure the continuation of the most rigorous, college-ready summer computer science program for High School students in Austin. The course covers computer architecture, material typically taught to Electrical/Computer Engineering and Computer Science undergraduate students in university.

In light of this announcement, applications for the program will open shortly from now. Please be on the lookout for an announcement when they will go live. We are looking forward to share this unique experience free of charge with our Central Texas students this summer.
