Bay Area Education Outreach by UC Berkeley Students

Pioneers in Engineering is a non-profit organization that provides a quality STEM learning experience for students in underserved Bay Area high schools. Our primary services are a year-long mentorship program called Prep and an annual 8-week robotics competition. For just $100 per team, we provide a robotics kit that's fully designed and developed in-house, as well as trained college student mentors for each team.

Scrimmage is this Saturday, April 11!

Look out for an email from the Head Ref or visit our wiki page for more details!
