Support The Tech’s Mission

The world needs young people who are equipped to tackle the toughest challenges facing our planet.

They will need to know how to embrace diverse points of view and work together without fear of failure. At The Tech, through every program, activity and experience, this is what we do. We provide hands-on experiences with science and technology specially designed to prepare the problem solvers of tomorrow and equip educators locally, nationally and globally to develop these skills in their students.  

Community support makes our exhibitions and educational programs possible.  

Join us in our mission to inspire the innovator in everyone.

Your Impact



Title 1 Field Trips

There are few experiences as inspiring as a field trip to The Tech Interactive to unlock a love for science, engineering and problem-solving in students. Unfortunately, many schools lack the resources to support these types of field trips.

STEM Inclusion Initiative

The Tech is committed to closing the opportunity gap through intentional equity and inclusion practices that help these students from historically marginalized groups pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

The Bowers Institute: Professional Development for Educators

The Bowers Institute helps teachers bring Design Challenge Learning into the classroom through online resources and in-person workshops. This center houses The Tech Academies of Innovation, an in-depth program helping Silicon Valley educators understand how to incorporate engineering design into their curriculum.
