Pacific Islanders Encouraging Fun, Engineering, Science and Technology (P.I.E.F.E.S.T.) is a non-profit organization that was founded in South San Francisco, California by Pacific Islander parents in search of a community within STEM.
The lack of Pacific Islander visibility in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) related careers continues to perpetuate the false narrative that STEM is not a significant part of Pacific Islander culture. In fact, we share a rich history of innovation, exploration, and ingenuity rooted in STEM.
P.I.E.F.E.S.T. is dedicated to improving Pacific Islander representation and increasing access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) related careers.
We are committed to engaging Pacific Islander children and youth by sharing educational, hands-on STEM activities, hosting STEM events and partnering with STEM programs to provide access to resources that will continue to nurture and encourage their interest in STEM as they grow into adulthood.
