Our Mission

The Manifezt Foundation aims to make quality STEM education accessible to students of all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Our long term goal is to equip our community with the skills to thrive in a South Florida continuously penetrated from a growing STEM market.

Equal education for all is a value we keep central to the Manifezt model; ultimately, a diverse learning environment that nurtures curiosity and encourages inquiry is what aim to provide our community after all of our efforts.
