We believe that THE UT.LAB can empower tomorrow’s leaders through our mission to make science cool. We are so passionate about this, and it has been the catalyst to the creation of LAB WORKS, our Student Shoe Design Contest, and our on-going #MeetTheGeek project.
In every country we enter we want to help local education organizations. So when you buy local, you'll help local. After vetting a number of education organizations in the United States, we found that Teach for America was the perfect fit for us. TFA has a particular focus to get the best math and science educators into America’s classrooms.
In the fall of 2013 we began working with Teach for America Las Vegas Valley so that we could have a direct impact on the community around us. Not only will we be helping to fund Teach for America’s efforts to secure great educators, but we want Las Vegas area students to work along with us on the development of our shoes. We are dedicated to make this a reality and was the catalyst behind our on-going shoe design contest with Las Vegas Valley TFA classrooms.
