The Juniper Foundation was established to make a meaningful difference for K-12 students considering a future in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. Our mission is to support innovative K-12 STEM education programs—specifically targeting underprivileged and underrepresented girls. We are proud to support these organizations highlighted today:

Black Girls Code | Booth 708
Our vision at Black Girls Code is to increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology. To provide African-American youth with the skills to occupy some of the 1.4 million computing job openings expected to be available in the U.S. by 202, and to train 1 million girls by 2040.

The Tech Interactive | Booth 607
The Tech Interactive is a family-friendly science and technology center in the heart of downtown San Jose. Our hands-on activities, experimental labs and design challenge experiences empower people to innovate with creativity, curiosity and compassion. The Tech is a world leader in the creation of immersive STEAM education resources to develop the next generation of problem-solvers locally, nationally and globally. We believe that everyone is born an innovator who can change the world for the better. In 2015 The Tech was awarded the National Medal for Museum and Library Service, the highest honor a United States museum, science center or cultural institution can achieve. We are driven by our mission: to inspire the innovator in everyone.
