IRVINE, California—October 13, 2014

OC Science was founded and launched by a group of middle and high school students mid-October. A number of these “founding members” had been previously given the opportunity to take part in science research for events such as school and district science fairs, the Orange County Science and Engineering Fair (OCSEF), and the national Broadcom MASTERS. These students had benefited greatly from their experiences in countless ways—they applied the scientific method to real life problems, and analyzed complicated data samples in order to reach a conclusion, just to name a few. The benefits were not only limited to academics, however. Students explored various speaking and display techniques in order to confidently and effectively present their findings. Furthermore, in participating in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) events, students found themselves surrounded by likeminded young individuals who also strived to learn more, know more, and do more, inspiring them to work harder and go deeper into the realms of science and other subjects.

OC Science’s members wish to provide these highly beneficial opportunities to a more widespread audience, especially students in elementary and middle school, in hopes that more and more of our youth will be exposed to the sciences and research opportunities at an early age, and as a result, become motivated to pursue STEAMrelated career paths in the future. OC Science plans to contact school districts across Orange County in order to increase access to these STEAM opportunities. OC Science, along with countless other organizations and leading individuals in today’s society, strongly believes that STEAM is essential to our nation’s future successes, and strives to promote it through events and activities geared towards our youth.

Math for Service, Inc. has provided OC Science with a grant to support them in their mission “to inspire and spread interest in science and engineering among youth in Orange County.”
