About

STEM FORCE was founded by 2 young engineers who wanted to impact the state of Oklahoma.  We achieve this by spreading the knowledge of STEM and the opportunities it provides. Our values are represented in the acronym FORCE, which stands for Family, Opportunity, Resilience, Commitment, and Excellence. 

The main reason for starting this organization was to increase the amount of exposure and access to STEM in the community. Our goal is to influence and encourage the youth to create and nurture a passion for STEM.​ We do this through the internal manufacturing of affordable STEM kits.

 

We believe all students can pursue STEM.
