Amplifying Youth Voices

The STEAM Connection is dedicated to a vital mission: ensuring that young minds have access to technical education by harnessing the transformative potential of robotics. However, our purpose goes beyond mere instruction. We are a collective of underrepresented individuals, members of the youth, who never had the privilege of seeing ourselves reflected in the media during our formative years. By amplifying our narratives and sharing our unique experiences, we aim to inspire every young person who shares our background to recognize that they too belong in this world.


We've been featured by Teen Vogue, the Smithsonian, PEOPLE Magazine, Scholastic, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, NBC, CBS News, NPR, ABC News, USA Today, Good Morning America ABC, Hulu, L'Oreal Paris, Adobe, Yahoo, Dell, Logitech, HP, Tech Crunch, The Daily Beast, Verizon, Instagram, Glamour, Upworthy News, Feminist, Zoom, MIT Solve, EdTech, HopeLab, Native Max Magazine, NDN Collective, CSTA, and many more.

Our founder Danielle Boyer has 13.7k followers on Instagram and 14.4k on TikTok.

We are available for interviews. Contact our team at for inquiries.
