#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 with a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. 

It always takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.

November 30, 2021

It is a global day of charitable giving unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. 

November is Military & STEM Month!

Every November, veteran organizations and military members celebrate Veteran’s Day. At SciTech Institute, we hope to connect with the community and share career pathways in the Army, Navy and Air Force. If you know a veteran or current service member willing to share about their Military Occupation Specialty (MOS), please invite them to get connected. 

Arizona is home to more than 5 active duty locations for all branches of the US military. Many companies and industry partners in our state also support the department of defense. This month, students, teachers, community members and organizations are invited to learn about on the job training, certifications and careers in STEM available for military service members and civilian contractors. 

Thank you to our SciTech Institute team members who have served as members of the United States Army – Kelly, Jake & Fritz. Let’s celebrate your service on November 11, 2021.

 

December is Computer Science Education Month!

SciTech Institute has teamed up with CSTA Arizona, Skill Struck and BootUp PD to host the 2nd annual CS Ed Month in Arizona – December 2021! This year, collaborators can sign up to host digital computer science engagements with students, teachers and families from December 1 to 17. On Saturday, December 4 from 9 am to noon, join us online or in person for the CS Ed Summit.

We would like to invite you, a team member or a set of 3 from your team to showcase Computer Science at your organization or school. If you are interested, please complete the Google Form: https://forms.gle/u6ffUjyJN6DzFrLM6 by Friday, November 26. We will send a confirmation of time and details on November 29.

Our goal is to organize at least 6 career panels or 10 company highlights – 30 to 45 minutes each. If you are available to moderate, that’s an option as well! Thank you for your support in building awareness, fostering excitement and sharing resources for Computer Science in Arizona.

CSEdWeek is an annual call to action to inspire K-12 students to learn computer science, advocate for equity in computer science education, and celebrate the contributions of students, teachers, and partners to the field.

OUR STEM PROGRAMS

Chief Science Officers (CSOs) amplify student voice by bringing their peers and community leaders together to ignite new opportunities in STEM through action plans. The global network of young leaders continues to grow in 12 regions around the world.

The Arizona SciTech Festival is an annual, statewide celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Collaborators around the state create Signature Events to bring their communities together to engage on hands-on activities.

The vision of Science For All is to provide students living in poverty with workplace employability and technical skills necessary for securing jobs in the STEM fields. Donate today!
