An annual gift to STARS makes a difference.

STARS-SLC contributes significantly to our community through many events throughout the whole year while simultaneously promoting STEM- related fields to young women and minorities. Our workshops often focus on bringing in groups that are normally underrepresented in typical STEM fields and exposing them to different sectors of these areas. STARS-SLC hopes to encourage and enlighten young people about the diverse STEM-related careers.
