Welcome! 

Playing At Learning serves Northern California through fun,
hands-on projects that encourages science, technology, math or
engineering exploration.

Sparking an interest in math and science is a key to providing economic
life choices for our youth.  We focus on affordable and sustainable
activities related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills.
Playing At Learning is a 501(c)(3) not for profit corporation. We have partnered with FIRST to deliver and manage 3 programs that spark an interest in and excitement for STEM!
