SMaRT Education

SMaRT Education is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation founded in 2010 by two passionate moms dedicated to improving access to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) for the kids of the Coachella Valley. The idea was to provide students with the resources, education, and life skills that would open doors to scholarships and lead to opportunities as competitive industry professionals. We started with 20 students, 1 elementary school, and a crazy plan.

We now serve over 3,500 students through eight counties in Southern California through exciting partnerships with school districts, ASES sites, youth organizations, museums, and community science centers.

SMaRT Education has after school programs, camps, and mobile technology labs to engage kids in STEM and digital media activities in Southern California.

We love Science. We love Math. We love Technology. Most of all, we love kids! Their brilliance inspires us to be the ultimate experience in learning and liking science, math and robotic technology. Providing them with the resources to further their scientific and technological knowledge and understanding is our passion. We are honored to help them share their brilliance with the world by teaching them how to use technology and not be used by technology.
Robotics, video game design, NASA projects, video production with editing and special effects, stop motion animation, robotics team support, and professional development for formal and informal educators who want to bring our program and passion into their organization.
