How We Started

In 2016, co-founder Kendra Klemann started volunteering at Family Promise, an emergency shelter for families. The LEGO robotics kits she brought with her had so much interest that she started finding other volunteers to get involved. The volunteer group started to write specialized curricula and facilitate workshops at Family Promise to keep up with the interest of kids and teens. Eventually, community members became interested in the initiative, and Engineering Opportunity was created in response. Engineering Opportunity strives to promote equity and accessibility in education through our workshops.
