In the summer of 2017, Victoria and Ashna met each other at a speech and debate summer camp. After talking about their own experiences with starting high school, the two realized that they both loved teaching younger kids and had a shared passion for STEM. A couple phone calls, emails, and texts later, STEM & Buds was created...and the rest is history.
STEM & Buds is entirely run by dedicated high school volunteers that are passionate about STEM and enthusiastic to help younger students. Serving as chapter heads and mentors, our volunteers have built a lasting network of devoted teens working to improve STEM education in our city.
