In today’s world, a comprehensive understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) subjects and related careers is becoming an indispensable resource to ensure the well-being of current and future citizens. Established in 2011, Scientists for Tomorrow from the Science and Mathematics department from Columbia College Chicago has served 100+ schools and centers from 16+ community-based organizations, and has reached 5,000+ students and over 100+ educators.

In collaboration between higher education institutions, community based organizations and the Informal Science Education (ISE) community, we continue to provide Out-of-School-Time (OST) programs for communities who lack high-quality STEAM resources.

Scientists for Tomorrow‘s mission is to offer Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) learning opportunities to students, parents and educators who want to embrace STEAM.

The goal of Scientists for Tomorrow is to expand STEAM learning opportunities to underrepresented communities and broaden the participation of minorities in those fields.
