What We Do

From the factory floor to the executive suite, workers skilled in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) are essential in today’s increasingly competitive environment.  Both entry-level and upper management personnel need to be equipped with critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaborative skills.  The Davie Community Foundation purchased the building that is now home to COGNITION in order to foster early and lifelong enthusiasm for STEAM concepts as well as build 21st century skills.
