Serving South Florida

Our Mission

The Manifezt Foundation is dedicated to democratizing STEM education, ensuring that learners from every socioeconomic and cultural sphere can access high-quality educational resources. We are committed to fostering a skilled community poised to excel in the dynamic and expanding STEM landscape.

At the heart of our ethos is the belief in equitable education. We strive to cultivate a diverse and stimulating learning atmosphere that champions curiosity and promotes critical inquiry. Our endeavors are directed towards empowering our community to harness the transformative power of STEM knowledge.

STEM Initiatives

Our leaders teach using open-ended and guided discussion methods, paired with smaller activities throughout that enable our students to incorporate the scientific method in their questioning and learning.

Science In The City
Science in the City workshops bring student s of all backgrounds together to immerse them in STEM activities built around college – and career-level standards, centralized around the marvel of space exploration all while covering sciences from environmental science to coding.
Youth STEM Program
Extensive hands-on stem education program for children 8-18 infused with experiments tailored to spark their interest in STEM, so we can transition into showing them the potential careers in those areas.

The Need

For years, South Florida has primarily invested in its hospitality sector, shaping its infrastructure around this industry. This singular focus has resulted in a shortfall of investment in scalable enterprises, particularly in the realms of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

STEM fields not only command the highest salaries across industries but also require substantial investment to impart effectively. Research consistently reveals a crucial consensus: the American education system is in dire need of enhancement.

The real test begins with identifying the specific areas in need of reform and devising strategies for improvement.

Our Plan

In the realm of public education, a shortfall in funding has unfortunately led to a decline in experiential, career-focused STEM education, depriving students of essential practical experiences.

At Manifezt, we address this gap by enriching the standard in-school curriculum with an interactive, project-based learning approach. Our aim is to ignite student interest through hands-on engagement, provide exposure to real-world applications, and illuminate the breadth of career paths within STEM fields.

Through strategic alliances with universities, we orchestrate workshops in community centers, libraries, and schools throughout South Florida. Our initiatives are designed to cultivate a highly skilled and socially aware STEM workforce, fostering local innovation and bolstering the growth of STEM industries within the region.

Programs

Implemented at community centers, libraries, and schools throughout South Florida, our immersive Programs are designed to captivate children’s interest.

Partnerships

To accomplish our goal, we have built an ecosystem of Partnerships with organizations that recognize the importance of our mission.
