Our mission is to foster the growth of an innovative spirit within our community by promoting educational initiatives that build foundations in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Our hope is to build a collaborative network of individuals and institutions across the community through a variety of educational programs and ongoing workshops. The intent isn’t to focus solely on STEM but a broader interdisciplinary synthesis of the creative arts and sciences. Someday we hope for the work done by Raise STEM! to provide national recognition to the Dayton Metro and surrounding areas as a center for innovative expression - bridging the gap between the arts, sciences, and technology.
