Our Mission

The Utah Valley STEM Foundation was founded in 2017 to promote STEM among elementary, middle, and high school students in the Utah Valley. Based in Provo, the foundation founded FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 6844, which competed and won the highest seeded rookie award at the world championships in Houston. The foundation is now working to continue to sustain FRC 6844 as well as create new FRC, FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge), and FLL (FIRST Lego League) teams in the Utah Valley. The foundation hopes to create a new FRC team in 2020 and hopes to eventually make robotics an accessible activity to all elementary, middle, and high school students in the Utah Valley. By coordinating with teachers, schools, companies, and the community we believe we can greatly enhance STEM learning in the Utah Valley.
