Catalyst for Success

Inspiring a new generation of scientists

Our Mission:

To Inspire

Catalyst for Success is a registered non-profit organization that aims to promote STEM education in order to inspire a new generation of scientists.

We provide chemistry magic shows consisting of many cool demonstrations that present science in a fun and engaging way. In addition, we follow up our assemblies by providing classrooms with personalized "hands on" activities where the children can try to learn 'Next Generation' science standards in subjects ranging from biology to computer science.

Since February 2013, we have...

  • Performed for over 30,000 students from schools in the Poway, San Diego, Chula Vista, Del Mar, Jamul, and Oceanside Districts
  • Conducted hands-on science labs with hundreds of classrooms

"For all I know we may have the next Einstein sitting in one of these 1100 kids, you have to open the resources to, tap into what they have, and see what you get."
