The mission of the Pre-College Initiative (PCI) program is to support and encourage K-12 participation in STEM.  Through hands-on STEM activities, trivia style academic games, and informative talks from real engineers, PCI programming is an effort to ensure healthy pipeline development in STEM fields and to stop the leakage of our young talent out of STEM related educational and career paths.
