She has been turning a science project into a STEM kits business for 11 years

“The kits help kids create their STEM identity because lots of things involve STEM in the world and I think that kids having the kits will help them a lot,” Davis said.

“She didn’t want to go the boring route of doing a diagram, so she decided to purchase her own materials to make her STEM kit, and from there she had the idea to start her business,” Brown added.

These eco-friendly, STEM-powered learning kits help kids feel more confident with every aspect of science and technology.

Story Highlights

  • Alaina Davis and her mom Zakiya Brown started the company STEM Powered Learning Kits back in April 2021. 

  • “This all started from a fifth-grade science project that Alaina had. She wanted to do an electric circuit kit,” Brown said.

“What makes them different is they are 55% less expensive than market leaders, they are affordable, accessible, reusable, durable and eco friendly,” Davis said.

With business booming, they have recently launched a fundraising campaign to expand the business. 

“Business has been going really well, the feedback has been really great,” Brown said. “We have a lot of partnerships, really strategic and very good partnerships with nonprofit organizations.” She continued, “We’ve partnered with Donors Choose, Decatur Makers — which is the largest multi-age maker space in Georgia — and as well as Georgia Cyber Academy, which is the school where Alaina attends.”
