STEAM in the Community
The Engineer Factory believes that one way to reduce disparities in STEM for girls and students in underserved communities is to expose them to fun STEM activities early and often. We spark interest in STEM by conducting hands-on, project-based STEM workshops at community sites throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties (e.g. schools, churches, community organizations, parks, community centers, after-school programs, etc.).
The workshops align with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and California Science Standards. Students are introduced to different types of engineering, the engineer design process, and the science behind projects through maker projects! Since founded in 2016, Engineer Factory served more than 9,000 K-8 students through our community & school-based STEM workshops. Some of our partners include: Inglewood USD, LAUSD, Charter Schools, Faith-based Schools, Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles, Los Angeles County Parks & Recreation, churches, after school programs and many community organizations.
