A foundation honoring the late MythBusters host Grant Imahara has been established to empower underprivileged youths to get into STEAM.

The late MythBusters host Grant Imahara would have turned 50 years old last week. A noted robotics engineer, Imahara had dedicated his prolific career to inspire others to partake in science and art. In honor of his life and legacy, his family and friends have established The Grant Imahara STEAM Foundation.

“There are many students, like my son Grant, who need the balance of the technical and the creative, and this is what STEAM is all about,” said Carolyn Imahara, Grant’s mother and Foundation co-founder.

The Grant Imahara STEAM Foundation is founded with the intention to pave ways for underprivileged youths to access opportunities in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and math. Contributions will go towards supporting the USC Viterbi K-12 STEM Center, which provides programs that bring innovative STEM projects to under-resourced K-12 schools, teachers and families in Southern California.
