Meet the Road-trippers: Arizona Innovation Roadtrip

When people think of "startups," many minds travel straight to Silicon Valley—either the city itself, or the equally amazing TV show. But as access to tech education and capital spreads, the barrier to entry for startups across the country has been lowered, and as a result, there's been explosive growth in areas that aren't San Francisco, CA. One such area? Arizona, a state whose commitment to entrepreneurship and innovation has attracted tons of new startups,...

Operation Roadtrip: The Journey’s Ended, But Their Mission Continues

Every day, America’s service members put their lives on the line to serve their country with pride and courage. But for many, the most formidable mission they’ll face is the transition back into civilian life. This past April, we joined forces with the USO—as part of their Transition 360 Alliance—to send three veterans and transitioning service members on an exploratory cross-country road trip. These three road-trippers, Sam, Bernard, and Helen,...

Follow the Journey of These Women in STEM!

The number of STEM jobs is increasing—but the number of women entering these fields isn’t. We’re on a mission to change that. Studies have shown that women are more likely to pursue and succeed in STEM fields if they see examples of women who already have. That’s why we are collaborating with AT&T, through the AT&T Aspire initiative, to send three young women on the road to seek out and...

Meet the Code Trip Team!

Computer science is at the heart of breakthroughs in business, medicine, creativity, and community building, but it’s a field that far too few young people have exposure to. Given that computer science is one of the most in-demand and highly paid skillsets in today’s job market, it’s crucial that access is more inclusive and equitable. That’s why Roadtrip Nation and Microsoft are teaming up to send 3 young people who...

The Design Roadtrippers: Favorite Snacks!
