Increasing Science Literacy in the Central Valley

Science is knowledge. Knowledge is information, and our lives are a collection of information; From the cells you are made of to the particles that compose everything around you. This information shapes our lives, how we interact with ourselves and, most importantly, the world around us. Schools call it biology, chemistry, engineering, physics or STEM; we call it BEAT.

We are a group of scientists; engineers; programmers; geeks; athletes; guys and gals who have pursued BEAT as a passion in college and grad school. We have done research, pulled the necessary all nighters, and learned from the best to become experts in our fields. We have seen first hand what education did in our lives, and we want others to get the same experience from an early ages and along all walks of life.

We offer classes, professional development and community events for education partners locally, regionally and statewide. From elementary school to high school, we have worked with partners to place undergraduate and graduate students in schools all across the Central Valley/Central Sierras to teach what they know best.
