Boehler says the non-profit has around 8,000 students that participate in their programs.
"Students are going to create those next level jobs and a lot of those are going to be in science and technology,” said Boehler.
Ethos is helping children learn and love science through programs like Lego League, STEM education, and robotics teams like the two that will soon compete at state.
"We won second place in inspire, is the best award and second place is pretty good I am definitely looking forward to going to state,” said eight grader Nathan Guantano
"Since I am homeschooled, I don't have a lot of social gatherings, and I have learned a lot more of programming since I have joined this, and I really enjoy it,” said sixth grader Cassandra Butler.
Anderson says he plans on making a career in science, and Ethos is to thank for that.
"There’s something for everybody ROVs, chemistry, robotics -- it’s just a growing field, and there’s something to get passionate abvout and there’s so much you can do,” he said.
