SARSEF

We create Arizona’s future critical thinkers and problem solvers through science and engineering. With SARSEF, children don’t have to wait to become scientists or engineers. With curiosity as their guide, they can start asking questions they care about and use science and engineering to find solutions that are meaningful to them, and even, the world.
 
Through this exploration of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), students gain critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are important for whatever career they choose. SARSEF focuses on engaging student populations underrepresented in the fields of STEM. We prioritize creating opportunity in schools in areas of poverty (as defined by Title I designations).
 
We foster communities of support for students in STEM by building the confidence and toolboxes of some of their greatest advocates – teachers and caregivers. Our educators travel to schools and community centers throughout the state to provide student outreach, teacher professional development, and parent workshops at no cost to Title I schools.
