Bringing Innovative Supplies and STEM Training to Schools
Our mission is to create a more vibrant, innovative future for our youth by giving schools amazing STEM supplies, curriculum, training and support.
Current Outreach Projects:
The StemTaught foundation is helping families and their students to regain access to education after their schools burnt down. Help us help Lahaina schools, families and students restore a few hours of education a day.
Past Outreach Projects:
Thanks to the California Coastal Commission we are able to bring some ocean fun to 30 schools across California. The interactive experience includes: a deep sea dive, a virtual diving adventure, touch pools, fossils of ocean life, a save the turtle recycling game, a coral bleaching station, and a life size whale.
Thanks to partnering with the Virginia and Alfred Harrell Foundation we were able to distribute over 5,000 STEM activity books to disadvantaged students.
STEMTaught visited Camp Keep to collaborate with and contribute to the Camp Keep experience. Thousands of kids will benefit from using STEMTaught microscopes to view plankton and other microorganisms when they come back to the dome after their belly biology activity.
30 miles on foot, 5 days of volunteering, 1 teacher development workshop and $5,000 in STEM supplies were donated this week by the STEMTaught Foundation to help this schools situation. This is the most remote elementary school in the United States and getting supplies there was no small issue. Luckily when we arrived at the school site, an amazing Navajo principal and some great teachers stepped in to help.
The STEMTaught Foundation was invited to the Tohono O'odham nation in Arizona by the principal of Santa Rosa Ranch school. The nearest motel we could find while visiting this remote school was 2 hrs away. Wild horses roam amidst swaro cacti on the school's campus because of a nearby watering hole. Like all students, the native Tohono students need more hands-on STEM.
The STEMTaught Foundation is working with a lot of school districts to help make this year more fun. Thanks to the help of many volunteers and donations students get to create and build with their own kits and even get to experiment with a scientist over zoom.
Be a STEM role model. We need your voices, we need your faces, we need your passion and stories as we work with young students to build lasting perceptions and create much needed change.
The past five years STEMTaught has focused on helping Kern County Schools bring more hands-on into the classroom. With over 2,000 volunteer class lab visits and many schools needing help with supplies STEMTaught is making a difference in Kern County. See how you can help.
One year after the devastating ridge fire that consumed the town of Paradise California we found students still in need. Schools have not been rebuilt yet. Supplies and curriculum have not been replaced. Teachers are tired and needed respite. STEMTaught visited every classroom with a fun hands on lab. We left teachers with the supplies and curriculum they needed to keep engaging their class with hands-on learning.

Volunteering daily in K-6th classrooms is what we do best. Running excellent experienced based STEM labs brings positive memories that last a lifetime. The best teacher training comes by supporting them in the classroom. We also organize needed supplies for schools to have quality hands-on STEM experiences.
After volunteering in over 3,000 classrooms, Beth and Jake Hunter left their formal STEM careers in 2016 and launched a mission to create solutions for better hands-on STEM in classrooms. In 2018, they founded the STEMTaught Foundation to help do just that.
We are excited to bring better tools and support to the excellent educators in schools across America. Please help us! We work day and night to help teachers inspire a love of learning and an excitement for STEM for our next generation. Help us make meaningful and lasting change to improve education.
