About our Partners

The Children’s Research Center (CRC) was founded in January 1982 to facilitate research on how children develop and learn. With the help of Austin families, the CRC studies how children gain language skills, how memories are formed, how kids learn about abstract concepts like luck & much more.

Girlstart's mission is to empower girls through STEM. We envision a future where all who identify as girls believe they can change their world through STEM. We are a national women-led organization, offering year-round out-of-school STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programming for girls in grades 4-8 in Texas, California, Massachusetts, and other locations across the country.

Austin Community College is a nationally recognized college serving Central Texas as the primary gateway to higher education and technical training opportunities.
