helping kids stem up to greater heights in the STEM fields


STEMup4Youth's founder, Sharleen Loh, sought to bring the wonders of STEM to even more children through our programs. Thus, STEMup4Youth's Troy High School chapter was established to allow students of Troy High to get involved in their community and expose more children to the elements of STEM! This chapter provides support and volunteers to our established parent organization.
