Why is this so important?

Even at a young age, your child has the ability to solve real world problems. The goal of STEM Camp is to give your kids hands on experience with technology and allow them to develop critical thinking skills now that will help them in the jobs and economy of the future.

“Having an entrepreneurial mindset is becoming more relevant than ever,” according to CEO of Startup Tucson, Justin Williams, “Companies such as Enterprise and Intuit have a  high demand for employees who have an entrepreneurial mindset.”  Today’s students need to develop these skills for their future pursuits.

Thanks to the support of the Brown Foundation, Startup Tucson is able  to offer proactive students one of 20 partial scholarships for Startup STEM camp.  With these scholarships, the cost to attend this week-long experience is far below any other camp of its kind. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to ensure your student has hands on experience with the tools and thinking needed for the future.

What is the Brown Foundation?

The Brown foundation, founded by successful businessman Thomas R. Brown, supports local education and innovation opportunities through their grant programs. With this incredible foundation as a supporter, Startup Tucson is giving away 20 scholarships to students that have a serious drive for entrepreneurship.
