The mission of my company is to ignite the fire that turns into a blaze of creativity, exploration, and academic success within children.
Racial bias, socio-economic status, and gender inequality create lack of STEM resources.
There are no STEM facilities that parents can bring their children to in my area.
Cookie cutter STEM Kits are expensisve and don’t offer customization specific to underrepresented job clusters.
The solution: STEM-Tastic Learning Labs.
My company brings equity, affordability, and customization to STEM education for all children. I create quality STEM materials, learning kits, and provide classes/camps that are customized. This means learning fits their specific needs. Each kit and class includes all necessary materials, and are affordable so that equity in hands on learning occurs for all children regardless of academic ability and socio-economic status. I am now seeking to use the customized kits in classes that will be offered in our Learning Labs to children in areas where STEM educational facilities are almost non existent.
The market size for STEM Education is about 914 million and is expected to grow over 5% this year.
Ki'Factors in Education is the company I created to close the gap between student success and lack of quality materials and resources to inspire critical thinking and problem solving abilities in children. My learning kits are customized and built to order. This means that each child, regardless of academic level, is provided with 10 hands on challenges that promote academic rigor and success.
I am seeking funding to open a STEM Learning Lab in areas where STEM exposure is almost non existent. My STEM-Tastic Learning Lab is a facility where students will:
Come to and enjoy 5 classes a month.
Enjoy classes focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math, and Makerspace.
Enjoy STEM and project based learning.
Leave with a customized STEM learning kit for home use
Your generous donations will lower the costs that parents incur to pay for the classes each month and assist in purchasing quality materials needed for each child who participates in the classes. I am seeking funding for the marketing and advertisement of the company. It is critical that parents are made aware of the importance of STEM education. I will use the funds for marketing and advertising to grow the awareness of the company. Finally, I am seeking funding to help in the hiring of an assistant. Currently, I do all things pertaining to the business; however, I am in need of a few part time assistants who can handle portions of the customer service aspects of the business and be qualified to facilitate some of the classes. I will use the funds to support that effort as well.
Each person who reads this, contributes to this, and/or prays for the success of this business is appreciated more than you'll ever know. Education is my passion. Uplifting our children and speaking success over their lives drives me to continue on this journey. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.
