Mathematics and Science Society for Youth (MSSY)

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to promote STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) education in youth.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help global youth to develop aptitudes as well as mindsets in mathematics and science.
Our vision is for every youth to appreciate the beauty of mathematics and science, and to realize their full potential in creativity and critical thinking.
Our current focus is to facilitate Sino-US educational exchanges in math and science, to foster youth development in STEM fields via practical and effective means, and to promote educational equity among individuals and across regions.
We believe the need to build a collaborative platform that brings students, parents, teachers, and experts together as partners in STEM education.
We believe that every student has an innate desire and ability to learn the world around them, to find underlying rules and mechanisms, and to create for the enjoyment of themselves and their community.
We believe in volunteerism and the power of giving. We believe an ordinary person can change the world, but an extraordinary change is only possible by our collective efforts.
