About

MISSION

Pioneers in Engineering (PiE) promotes STEM education through a mentorship-based process. We strongly believe that no student should be denied a quality STEM education experience.

Helpful college mentors

PiE runs a decal which trains a group of dedicated mentors consisting of current and past Berkeley students who are ready and willing to help the students

Low cost for schools

Because PiE creates everything in the competition and has a group of wonderful sponsors, we can keep costs low which lowers the barrier to entry for Bay Area schools

Dedicated club members

A group of talented students who make everything happen from the game design to the software to the robot kits
