Our program enables students to grow by helping them explore and learn about careers in STEM.
State Farm® Tech Astra™ engages female and nonbinary students with areas of science, technology, engineering and math to build a community that fosters learning and personal development. We will open the door to a stronger future by empowering students to explore their interests and skills with a network of their peers.
