Strategic Collaborators

Arizona Technology Council Foundation

The Arizona Technology Council Foundation is dedicated to supporting STEM education (mostly informal experiences) by carrying out projects, programs, fairs, bowls and festivals that focus on STEM.
  • Arizona Technology Council Foundation

    Mission: STEM or science, technology, engineering and mathematics represent the disciplines of knowledge by which we understand, measure, and design our world. STEM education is an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to learning that provides project-based and relevant experiences for students in the STEM disciplines. This type of education offers students one of the best opportunities to make sense of the world holistically, rather than in bits and pieces. STEM education removes the traditional barriers erected between the four disciplines, by integrating them into one cohesive teaching and learning paradigm. The Arizona Technology Council Foundation is dedicated to supporting STEM education (mostly informal experiences) by carrying out projects, programs, fairs, bowls and festivals that focus on STEM. The purpose of this support is to motivate students to seek educational and career paths in STEM-related fields. The Foundation also sponsors students who are pursuing careers in technology through scholarships and grants.

    Vision: The Arizona Technology Council Foundation will be a collaborative organization, serving to productively align the technology-oriented assets of the state, and attracting grants, resources and support from both within and beyond the state’s borders by promoting and connecting Arizona’s industries, leaders and successes and building a world class community of technology sophisticated workers.

    The Arizona Technology Council Foundation relies heavily on fundraising and generous donations from people that want to support the growth of focused STEM education in Arizona. A donation for education is easily accepted via check (please address check to the Arizona Technology Council Foundation and mail to 2800 N.
