In 2017, STEMNauts became a finalist in the prestigious MIT Launch entrepreneurship program and received a grant from MIT/LaunchX. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to MIT/LaunchX High School Entrepreneurship Program (https://launchx.com/) for their generous grant in support of our mission.
In 2017, we were officially recognized and registered as a 501 c3 status nonprofit. We remain dedicated in our mission to inspire STEM, raise awareness, and create a collaborative environment.
Our impact has been most measurable through the number of students that participate in our tutoring and competitions. In the past five years, we have grown from helping one student to over 70 students per week and over 250 total students.
While originally starting solely at the Trenton Public Library, STEMNauts has expanded across multiple community/family centers. We now also partnered with: The Children’s Home Society of NJ (2018), MillHIll Child and Family Development (2018), and Hamilton Public Library (2019).
In the past five years, we have grown from three student volunteers to over 40+ tutors and 7 team leaders. Many of our volunteers participate for 50+ hours a year and have achieved the Presidential Volunteering Service Award (PVSA). We have received 6 gold PVSA awards and many silver and bronze level awards.
