Program Overview

WE BELIEVE … in learning by doing and using experiential, hands-on programs to draw more students into the STEAM pipeline. We seek to increase the number of low-income, preK-12 students in Atlanta, Fulton County and DeKalb County demonstrating demand for and proficiency in STEAM subjects.

Investment Strategy

In pursuit of the long-term goal of more students earning postsecondary certification and degrees in STEAM fields, The Pipeline Project invests in innovations that disrupt the status quo for underserved preK-12 students.

The Pipeline Project is especially interested in emerging programs that succeed in reaching youth who would otherwise have little meaningful access to hands-on STEAM programs. It is through these classrooms, after-school and summer experiences that The Pipeline Project seeks to build both the supply of and the demand for STEAM programs among low-income youth and their families. By fostering peer learning and exchange through the collection of Pipeline Project partner organizations, the Blank Foundation seeks to build a network of practitioners with influence sufficient enough to shift the direction of policy and the allocation of resources toward students who are not served by the current system.
