WHO WE ARE
One World is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that is led by a coalition of determined individuals with the common goal of uniting and empowering people through the use of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) on a global basis. Today, our world is becoming increasingly polarized and disparate in terms of the quality of education and resources to assist with investigative and creative learning. Low-income communities struggle with providing basic essentials to their families and do not have the resources to invest in increasing their students' exposure to STEAM. Through local summer camps, seminars, and conferences, we hope to inform students that they have the potential to be creative innovators, problem solvers, and researchers who can make an impact on the world.
WHAT WE DO
TEACH students of various backgrounds and further their knowledge and understanding of STEAM in different educational settings.
ENGAGE youth by providing exposure to various domains and applications of STEAM.
INSPIRE youth around the globe to seek opportunities and careers in STEAM.
We envision a future where students of all ages and ethnicities collaborate to solve some of the world's greatest problems. We hope to empower students to take the initiative and spread their passion for STEAM to other members in their community.
STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Math) solely focuses on scientific concepts. STEAM investigates the same concepts, but does so through inquiry and problem-based learning methods and incorporates the Arts. STEAM education provides students with the opportunity to learn creatively and the skills attained from STEAM learning are imperative for growing an innovative and intellectual workforce. Educators and scientists like math rockstar Eddie Woo, artist/engineer Stephen Mushin, and bio-engineer Melissa Knothe Tate ilustrate how STEM plus the arts work with extraordinary synergy.
Upcoming Events and Projects
Exciting Events Are In The Works
One World hopes to make a calendar in the near future displaying future events, projects, fundraisers, and workshop nights. In the meanwhile, if you have any questions regarding specific event dates and details, feel free to contact us. Thank you for your patience!
One World strives to develop programs and curricular resources such as summer camps for students living in low-income areas. Our current focus has been to transform the educational careers of students living in title 1 schools in Prince William County, VA. However, we hope to soon expand our mission to other schools in the Northern Virginia and the DC Metropolitan area. Eventually, we hope to appoint student ambassadors in other states to serve their community with STEAM as well. In addition, our organization aims to impact schools and communities in other parts of the world. Currently, we are working with a girls school in a severely impoverished area in Chennai, India to provide various forms of technology. One World will continue its efforts, and we would love your help!
One World gave our students a passion for STEAM
"I cannot tell you how touched I was that our students had this opportunity [One World STEAM Summer Camp] this summer and that they had a chance to be mentored by the One World team! I'm sure you've planted seeds for the future for so many of them to think of STEAM careers and activities in the years to come!"
- Christopher Tsang, Principal, Neabsco Elementary School

If you work at local school or would like us to come and implement activities in your community, let us know. We want to hear from you!
Organizations Empowering And Supporting STEAM
These organizations all share a common sentiment: all support the mission and vision of One World. It is becuase of these intelligent organizations that we have been able to accomplish our goals so far. The expertise and support that has been provided has been invaluable in our efforts to promote STEAM learning to students and their communities. We sincerely thank our supporters, community leaders, sponsors, and partners.
Where We Stand
All of us in One World are attentively watching the protests in our country and individually advocating for justice. We are outraged at the murder of yet another Black person by police, and as an organization of diverse students, we recognize that we must speak up. “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter." We share Martin Luther King Jr.’s saying and we will not be silent during this time. One World fully supports every peaceful individual who is on the front lines fighting for justice from Washington D.C. to Los Angeles. Our organization was founded because we strive to promote equality in S.T.E.A.M. education for students regardless of color. As young people, it is our duty to forge a better world than the generations before us.
One World is committed to treating everyone equally regardless of race, religion, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or other identifying characteristics. As an organization, One World does not condone racism in any form and we’ve already committed to helping students in our community and around the world regardless of their background. We strongly believe not only in the condemnation of racism, but also in our moral obligation to be actively anti-racist and just towards everyone.
Words are incredible tools, but activism is the key to implementing widespread systemic change. Therefore, One World will be to donating funds to the Black Lives Matter movement in order to further our support for the Black and African American community, in addition to cultivating partnerships with various corporations in order to increase our donation’s impact. One World was founded on the pillar of equity, and we will continue to work to promote the eradication of systemic racism and advocate for unity and diversity throughout our community and our nation. To the entire Black and African American community, we see you, we hear you, and we stand with you always.
