Launching Our First Stem Box!

Updated: Jul 21, 2020


Welcome! We are Project Empower, an organization dedicated to diversifying the STEM fields. As rising college freshmen, we work to inspire future generations of underrepresented students in STEM. We recognize that that this time has presented several challenges to many communities, and we hope that our free STEM boxes can provide a fun source of entertainment for the summer!
