helping kids stem up to greater heights in the STEM fields



Founder & President

Chief STEM Instructor


Troy High School

STEMup4Youth's founder, Sharleen Loh, sought to bring STEM education to a wider range of underserved communities. 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.
