preparing students for the challenges of tomorrow
Few factors are more important to the future success of communities than having a well-educated population that is prepared to meet the challenges of tomorrow. We cultivate innovative partnerships with organizations, local governments, and community and nonprofit organizations to improve instruction in the key subjects of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Read about some of the partnerships and programs we support:
Chevron partnered with the Fab Foundation to open an innovative, hands-on fabrication laboratory at Kennedy High School in 2015. Using laser cutters, 3D printers and other precision machinery, Fab Lab Richmond is helping to inspire students to become the innovators, entrepreneurs and makers of the future. By giving students access to cutting-edge technology, they are able to dream, design and build almost anything. Fab Lab Richmond is also open to the public on a monthly basis while school is in session.
