Step Up For STEM

Education Challenge

Entering our 3rd year of increasing access to quality STEM education through our unique and engaging workshops and having served over 1,100 of this nations children. We're challenging everyone across the United States to STEP Up For STEM education by donating to make sure we can continue to encourage a child’s inherent curiosity in science, technology, engineering, & math.

Help us reach the remaining 50% of our goal of raising $100,000 for our "Science In The City" program.

Why Should You Support Us?

Here at the Manifezt Foundation, our mission is to support the economic development of the region by implementing effective S.T.E.M Initiatives that impact Education & Workforce Placement.

As a state, Florida ranks 41st in funding per student and unfortunately, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) is the most expensive form of education due to the nature of the subjects requiring more expensive material and equipment to teach it. At Manifezt, we supplement what the youth are learning in school with hands-on, project-based workshops in an effort to show them the fun side of science while exposing them to new and exciting careers.

Volunteer Driven

Partnerships with regional universities, corporations, and government ensuring our focuses align with the growth of the ecosystem.

Passionate Leaders

Multi-discipline core team that are both creating unique curricula and also implementing our initiatives.

Hand-On Learning

Our founders started the organization because they wanted to increase opportunities. Now Manifezt works within communities to support economic development.

Make The Pledge: Step Up for STEM

Every contribution regardless of the dollar amount goes towards our equipment needs that range from pigs for dissections, to robotics equipment, and laptops to teach coding on, so any assistance you can provide will go a long way. Thank you for caring about our childrens future!!
