What if we could capture the attention of students in middle school and provide them a pathway to success after high school?  What if we keep them engaged, teach them valuable skills and prepare them to confidently enter the workforce?  It’s possible and we have proven that it can be done!

XtremeSTEM is an Ohio-based non-profit organization (501c3) leading the way in eliminating Ohio’s manufacturing workforce crisis through proven, results-oriented solutions. It is our mission to inspire students to pursue STEM careers in advanced manufacturing. Using experiential student programs, we effectively dispel the myths and misconceptions about the industry, showing the next generation that the manufacturing industry is not dark, dying, or dangerous - it is full of opportunity.

Since our founding just over ten years ago, we have worked with over 3,500 students from 60 schools, hosting over 20 competitions with over 1,000 student-built robots and drones. Our impact goes beyond just the students. With an average event attendance of approximately 1,000 parents, teachers, and robotics enthusiasts, XtremeSTEM has given tens of thousands of community members unique insights into the world of advanced manufacturing. 


We ENGAGE middle and high school students, introducing them to STEM and its role in advanced manufacturing through fun, hands-on programs like XtremeBOTS, XtremeDRONES, Xtreme3D and more.

We EDUCATE students, teaching important skills like leadership, teamwork, problem solving, and crisis management, as well as introducing elementary concepts of design, engineering, manufacturing, and assembly.

We EQUIP each student, giving them a broad understanding of the scope and importance of the advanced manufacturing industry and providing them with a clear pathway to the many in-demand, high-paying career opportunities that it offers.

Interviews with graduating seniors have shown that approximately 60% of our program participants intend to pursue an advanced manufacturing or engineering career. XtremeSTEM programs are not just fun, they create a real workforce pipeline into the advanced manufacturing industry. It is time to expand this effort and bring a long-term solution to Ohio’s manufacturing workforce shortage.  Please join us and help us create a solid future for advanced manufacturing industry.

“The Xtreme Bots program gives us exposure to potential job candidates that are interested in (manufacturing) careers.  We have improved our image as a company willing to invest in the personal development of local STEM students.”

Jacob Townsend, Project Engineer, Dayton Lamina Corporation

“We participate because it covers all aspects of engineering and manufacturing.  Having a company mentor lets the students get into a manufacturing setting outside of the classroom.”

David Lord, Teacher, Kettering-Fairmont High School
