Boosting STEM Education Among Tribal and Underrepresented Youth
The mission of Redbridge Foundation and the Inter-Tribal Energy & Tech Tour is to advance economic opportunity for tribal and underrepresented communities by improving access to STEM education through focus on energy, technology, and space.
Educate tribal and underrepresented youth about STEM-related careers in energy, technology, and space through hands on learning opportunities and interactions with organizations doing work that directly relates to their communities.
Build community involvement and support for STEM education awareness through blog posts, student learning videos, social media tour posts, and project sharing.
Promote partnership and inter-tribal collaboration by generating awareness and engaging community involvement through in-person knowledge sharing and youth project sharing.
Provide opportunities for students to meet Native American and underrepresented STEM professionals and industry experts through educational panel discussions with tour stop participants.
