STEMania Founders Support STEM Youth Education

With creating a community first, STEMania Founders offer annual Need Based Scholarships to attend STEMania. Alisa and Curtis have always been involved in youth development by volunteering in or donating to at-risk school programs and orphanages.  In Sarasota, Alisa and Curtis also support the YMCA, Forty Carrots Family Center, the Sarasota Youth Opera, FIRST Lego League, Public Schools, Home Schools Groups, and several other children organizations. 

In Memory of Alisa’s father, STEMania has set up the Dr. Paisal Jirut Memorial Scholarship Fund to provide Need Based Scholarships to attend STEMania.  Dr. Jirut always believed that education was a foundation for all his children and inspired Alisa in STEM Education.  As a physician, he took time and loved to teach his hospital staff as well as patients.
