Providing scholarships to inspire young minds.
Welcome to the TechShop STEAM Scholarship program!
Here, we hope to make our highly successful STEAM program available to any kid who wants to learn by making and by using the powerful tools of the innovation revolution.
At TechShop, we believe in the awesome power of youth. Our shops are one-of-a-kind, membership-based, DIY fabrication studios offering access to over $1 million worth of workspace, equipment, tools and design software at each location. We would like to see kids from all different backgrounds have an opportunity to benefit from our tools and education. And we need your help to make it happen.
We believe that when kids learn how to use basic tools and create fun projects that are open-ended and customizable, their creativity, initiative, and enthusiasm naturally follow. Our curriculum is specifically designed to build 21st century skills by actively engaging students with machinery, design software, and technology such as laser cutters and 3D printers.
Our popular STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) training program for youth ages 8 to 17 consists of 30 hours of hands-on training in one of two distinct learning tracks:
Help us impact the lives of as many kids as possible by giving them training and access to the tools of innovation. To become a TechShop STEAM Scholarship Program sponsor, email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to your local TechShop Senior Accounts Manager.
