What is BrainSTEM?

BrainSTEM started as a STEM education program, helping youth in underserved areas access quality STEM education. As more students transition to learning online, we’ve grown to be an edtech company that develops teacher tools to enable all teachers and students to be more creative and dive deeper into learning.
