LET’S GO (Leadership Engineering, Technology, Science Generating Opportunities) enables out-of-school organizations to deliver fun, hands-on education activities that will increase STEM interest and increase STEM proficiency leading to growth in the quality and quantity of students entering our country’s STEM education pipeline.
Our goal is to inspire and support children to become professionals in science, engineering and other technical career fields.

In 2005, the National Academies released an eye-opening report called "Rising Above the Gathering Storm," which identified alarming trends in America's STEM education. Their conclusion was clear: if we want to remain the undisputed leader of the global economy, we need to improve our STEM abilities, and we need to do it urgently. -- Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison
