Focus Area

STEM Education


The Berkeley Public Schools Fund champions equitable public education for students, families, and our community. Through grants, volunteers and STEM programs, we center equity for the benefit of our students and the entire community. Our partnership with Wareham Development and BUSD to close the opportunity gap in STEM education provides supportive and enriching STEM education experiences for populations historically underrepresented in STEM fields. The "ladder" of programs offered K-12, opens doors to educational and career opportunities for students in high school and beyond.
