Growing Teams to Create STEM Opportunities for Students:

Located outside a metropolitan market, students in rural communities have fewer opportunities to encounter advanced STEM curriculum and resources.  Addressing this need in our region, LHER, Inc. strives to provide the resources necessary to develop the next generation of the STEM workforce and broaden impact by growing more teams.

Remove Barriers by Providing Resources:

By providing resources for STEM robotics programs in rural and/or high-poverty communities, LHER, Inc. creates greater opportunities to reach underserved, underrepresented, and vulnerable students. Strategically providing resources enables the growth of new teams and allows students, coaches, and mentors to concentrate on robotics.
