New England Region High School Drone Competition: 

STEM-ED, Inc. is the parent company of the Aerospace Robotics Competition (ARC).  Our operation is a 100% volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit that hosts numerous STEM activities throughout the year for high school students.

In today’s rapidly evolving technological landscape, STEM education has never been more critical. Many students lack access to hands-on learning experiences that inspire creativity and problem-solving skills. Additionally, the cost of educational resources and equipment often presents a barrier, particularly in underserved communities.
