Our goal is to increase digital fluency of young innovators through student engagement and mentoring. By partnering with us, your organization will also play a vital role in changing the gender dynamic in STEAM fields, particularly in Computer Science.

We bring cutting-edge technologies to engage students. From Artificial Intelligence and project-based simulations guided by industry mentors to design thinking and video storytelling, these are tools that build confidence and mastery with children and adults alike!

Facilitating Year-Round Learning

Since 2009, our highly successful Dare 2B Digital Conferences have excited, engaged and educated young innovators ages 11-17 with support from industry mentors, parents, government and academia. From Silicon Valley to Southern California and around the globe, partners have an opportunity to bring these highly-acclaimed learning events to young innovators everywhere.

Dare 2B Digital Design Challenge

Launched at each Dare 2B Digital Conference, the Dare 2B Digital Design Challenge enables students to learn design thinking methodology and apply it to solving a global problem in fields such as Transportation, Environment, Cybersecurity, Health and Wellness and Space Exploration. We provide knowledge, technology tools and industry mentors to support the competition. Winning teams share their results at the end of the day, earn prizes and are invited to private tours of some of our corporate partners including Tesla and PayPal.
