The STEMbassadors IDEA Center is a permanent location that offers marginalized youth and the community opportunities to bridge their education with innovation. By offering career pathways, students get the chance to partner with local businesses and community members.

Access

The IDEA Center operates on a membership structure, meaning that to access the facility you must purchase a membership or day pass. You can also purchase a seat in any of the offered classes which will admit you to the space without any fees beyond what is charged by an instructor.

Although we would someday love to become a free, public resource, we do not currently posses the financial resources required to do so.

The STEMbassadors are working hard to secure grant funding from local school districts and other organizations in order to provide scholarships for as many students and community members as possible.

If you would like to support our mission to make the IDEA Center more accessible, please consider donating.
