STEAM CUP USA's mission is to lower the barrier of entry into robotics by providing simple and affordable robotics kits to students of all levels, backgrounds, and ethnicities, and inspire them to become trailblazers in STEM-related fields.
STEAM CUP USA is a branch of our parent organization, STEAM EDUCATION ASSOCIATION, which was founded in Seoul, Korea in 2013. The main focus was to use robotics to foster multi-talented learners while emphasizing science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics fields. The organization has reached over ten countries across Asia and Europe through its STEAM CUP online competitions and currently holds international and local STEAM CUP competitions in Iran, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, and Korea.
In accordance with STEAM EDUCATION ASSOCIATION, STEAM CUP USA is a direct response to a national initiative to prepare students for the twenty-first century by focusing on STEM disciplines.
While there has been a significant increase in new STEM-related jobs in recent years. However, there is a lack of preparedness in high school students in STEM-related subjects.
STEAM CUP USA engages young people in STEAM education in innovative ways while also securing financial support for schools and youth development organizations to participate in STEAM-related programs. By eliminating fees that other competitions require, STEAM CUP USA mitigates financial stress on schools, after-school programs, and parents to register students in STEAM programs.
