Our mission

Young Inquisitive Minds is a student-run non-profit initiative geared towards fostering scientific exploration and curiosity in children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Through hands-on STEM activities such as building robots and conducting science experiments, Bay Area students in special education programs are given the opportunity to immerse themselves in extensive STEM learning, inspiring many to pursue STEM careers in the future.

How does OUr program work?

We host daily/weekly sessions for kids in special education in which we work on collective STEM activities such as building robots or conducting science experiments. In doing so, we help with their social skills and their STEM skills. We pride ourselves in our ability to host activities that give students personalized interaction with their corresponded volunteer and the connections that participants build in the process of our sessions.

Join our July 19th session and make fluffy slime with us!

Children will be guided with a step by step procedure using materials such as shampoo and cornstarch in appropriate quantities to create a cool concoction that can provide hours of fun and help increase motor skills.
