We are LEAP For STEM®
Inspiring young people to be science and technology leaders.
LEAP For STEM® is a subsidiary of FIRST RGV, INC. and is a non-profit group of professionals, mentors and various volunteers from science, technology and engineering careers. Our goal is to help students to enjoy the reward of a STEM career and have some of the hardest fun they will ever have in learning. We offer programs in FIRST robotics, drones, programming / coding, cybersecurity, forensic sciences (CSI) camps and much more.
Life without the sciences is something no one can do these days. We are proud to be announcing a very special forensics summer camp for high school students of the Rio Grande Valley that will be taught by a PhD with more than 18 years of hands on criminal forensics experience.
New to the Rio Grande Valley for 2018, we are proud to announce the creation of cybersecurity camps for high school students. We will be hosting CyberPatriot® camps during June, 2018. These camps will prepare students to compete nationally and become a professional at defending cyberspace.
We continue to be your source for educational robotics. FIRST RGV / LEAP For STEM is proud to exclusively represent FIRST robotics and is the regional partner for FIRST in Texas for the Rio Grande Valley starting fall 2018.
