Learning Undefeated has had an extraordinary year as we celebrated our 20th anniversary, delivering our flagship mobile laboratory program across the nation. We’ve now reached an astounding 1.5 million students with our immersive and experiential education programs for K-12 students. Our fleet now comprises seven state-of-the-art mobile labs currently serving Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, Texas, and Louisiana. In 2022, we launched two groundbreaking programs: the Port of Corpus Christi’s PORT-Able Learning Lab and Explorer7. We also introduced an exhilarating escape-room-style experience onboard the award-winning Drop Anywhere Lab.
Our programs are designed to equip students with the skills they need to thrive in the future workforce by fostering STEM identity, instilling self-efficacy, teaching critical thinking skills, and empowering students to reach their full potential. Learning Undefeated’s Emerging Leaders in STEM program, now in its fifth cohort, has forged meaningful connections between young women and female STEM leaders and has over 100 internship-ready alumnae.
Learning Undefeated has set an ambitious goal to reach one million more students by 2027. To accomplish this, we continue to expand our scope and footprint to engage an increasingly diverse range of students. This expansion is driven by new partnerships with leading employers that have expanded our curriculum and hands-on activities spanning a wide range of career opportunities, from auto collision, advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, cybersecurity, engineering, and artificial intelligence. And we have exciting plans to expand our reach in the 2023 school year.
The driving force behind our success is the team of talented and passionate individuals dedicated to our mission. We are also immensely grateful for the support of our partners and donors, whose contributions make it possible for us to provide STEM education resources for schools free of charge. On behalf of our team and board of directors, thank you for your partnership and support.
