20th Anniversary Foundation Spotlight: Expansion of the Ripken Foundation STEM Center

Thanks to the support of many corporate partners, the Ripken Foundation's STEM Center program has grown from 44 Centers in 2020 to 138 fully operational STEM Centers in 15 states, impacting 63,280 kids in 2021. Most recently, we partnered with Devon Energy and The Foundation for Tulsa Schools to install 47 cutting-edge science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) Centers in every Tulsa Public Elementary School and the Tulsa Dream Center. These spaces allow budding young scientists and engineers to practice their critical thinking skills, expand their horizons and be exposed to the wonders of technological learning. 

We are so grateful to all of our STEM partners for making STEM education accessible to so many at-risk youth across the country.
