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 Innovation Challenge

Launched at each Dare 2B Digital Conference, the Dare 2B Digital Innovation Challenge enables student ambassadors to recruit a team from their community to solve a global problem in Transportation, Environment, Cybersecurity, Health and Wellness, and Media and Entertainment. We provide knowledge, technology tools and industry mentors to support the competition. Teams submit their solution as a video and finalists are invited to the Dare 2B Digital Red Carpet Innovation Celebration to share their results and earn scholarships and prizes.
