Making is fundamental to what it means to be human.

We inspire a future-ready STEM workforce. 

In an increasingly technology-driven world, Kentucky and our nation continue to face a crisis in our student's performance and participation in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), creating a talent shortage. Our programs, events, and outreach activities inspire local youth to pursue STEM careers and provide a pipeline of talent to businesses in southeastern Wisconsin. Our rich history and strong partnerships with STEM employers and educators make us uniquely poised to influence the next generation of critical thinkers and innovators.
