Per the Arizona Department of Education, there are over 1300 Arizona schools where the majority of students are living in poverty. The vision of Science For All is to provide these students with workplace employability and technical skills necessary for securing jobs in the STEM fields. The creation of this pool of high-tech talent will help attract employers to Arizona and improve Arizona's standing as a STEM hub.
Science for All utilizes the innovative Chief Science Officer (CSO) program as the vehicle to help youth develop employability and technical skills through STEM events, job training programs, mentor-ships, internships and other CSO program activities.
We currently serve 99 Arizona schools with low-income student populations. There are over 1300 such schools in Arizona, representing a large unmet need.
