Teamwork: The Solution for Success

Just as the STEAM disciplines work together to support each other, our partners come together to support FirstHand. FirstHand programs are made possible by schools, youth programs, community organizations and financial supporters – as well as the Science Center resident companies and mentors who work with us to give students and educators an exceptional experience with science.
