Igniting Moments of Discovery.

US2020 is igniting moments of discovery for students through a network of local coalitions that provide hands-on STEM education and maker-centered learning.


Our mission is to change the trajectory of STEM education in America by dramatically scaling the number of STEM professionals engaged in high-quality STEM mentoring with youth.

We are specifically focused on programming that supports underserved and underrepresented students. Launched at the 2013 White House Science Fair, we are building a working community of committed companies, organizations, schools, government agencies, and cities. This community is leading the way in building a quality-driven STEM Mentoring Movement.

As a part of US2020, we have brought together a coalition of STEM partners from colleges and universities, corporations and businesses, and research institutions to impart their collective knowledge and mentor Philadelphia students. I want to thank US2020 for responding to President Obama’s call for innovative solutions to the nation’s STEM education challenge.
