Helios Education Foundation is dedicated to increasing the postsecondary education success of individuals in Arizona and Florida. By strategically contributing our leadership, expertise and resources at all stages of the education continuum, the Foundation seeks to create a college-going culture where all students are prepared to succeed.

Helios’ investments are focused across three key impact areas: Early Childhood Education, the Transition Years (Grades 5-12) and Postsecondary Scholarships. Since 2006, the Foundation has invested over $100 million in education-related programs and initiatives in Arizona and Florida.

“In order for our students to successfully compete in a global economy, they must be equipped with 21st century skills,” said Barbara Ryan, Helios Education Foundation’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “STEM education is the linchpin to that success, and it’s the right mechanism to ensure that our students are developing the appropriate skill set.”

Helios Education Foundation is excited to partner with the Arizona SciTech Festival. Through this work, students are becoming more engaged in STEM, and ultimately will become better prepared to achieve a postsecondary education.

Please join us in expressing thanks to our Gold Sponsor, Helios Education Foundation, for their generous support of the Arizona SciTech Festival. For more information on Helios Education Foundation, visit
