The Urban Nerds Foundation is dedicated to bringing a broader experience to inner city kids when it comes to Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (aka STEM), and other Nerd categories such as video games, comic books, cartooning and more.
Why Urban Nerds?
We come from urban areas. We know what it is like to grow up in an urban environment only to realize later on there is so much more in the world you were not exposed to. In many urban environments the focus is on poverty and entertainment areas of life such as sports and music. There is a very low chance of children coming from urban environments being able to compete in the advanced world of technology and sciences when poverty and hardship is always in your face. Urban Nerds is here to help.
