Our United States Division works to improve U.S. high school and postsecondary STEM education and support talented children in the State of Florida. And our Global Educational Outreach Division seeks to build strategic relationships and promote educational programs that will help advance our work.
In the United States, our primary focus is on ensuring that students graduate from high school prepared for college and have an opportunity to earn a postsecondary degree with labor-market value. Our approach is to play a catalytic role—to support the development of innovative solutions in STEM (Science - Technology - Engineering and Math) education that are unlikely to be generated by institutions working alone and that can trigger change on a broader scale.
Because our resources alone are not enough to advance the causes we care about, we engage in educational projects to promote activities that advance our work, build strategic alliances with international schools and the public and private sectors, and foster greater public awareness of urgent STEM issues.
Our approach emphasizes collaboration, innovation, risk-taking, and, most importantly, results.
