Our Mission

Desert Innovation, Research and Technology, known as DIRT, is a Nevada-based non-profit that aims to link STEM students and researchers to working professionals in infrastructure and development industries through real-world application and immersion learning. Our main focus is to promote science education, research opportunities, and industry advancements.

By way of real-life practical application and innovative approaches, DIRT wants to foster the interest in and support STEM education and infrastructure and development industries. We see many educational efforts working parallel to our vision, and we want to be the catalyst that combines all these inventive efforts, bringing cutting-edge ideas to the desert southwest.
