Terra Science and Education is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to improve the quality of life through the support of those who are engaged in education and innovation.

It was founded in 2011 for the improvement of K–16 education through consulting, scholarships, research and public forums.


Terra organizes events, fairs, and symposia to provide solutions to educational issues, and offers platforms for students and educators to learn from one another. Terra is a proud founder and sponsor of GENIUS Olympiad, which brings high school students from around the globe to a college campus to solve environmental problems. We also offer ESL programs, college fairs and scholarships to students at selected schools. For educators, Terra organizes and sponsors the “Transforming Urban Education” conference series each fall in Syracuse and Buffalo, NY. Terra also provides access to the latest research in education through the Terra CARES research arm.

*Our educational programming is open to local public and private schools. Terra maintains a direct relationship with Syracuse Academy of Science and Utica Academy of Science, providing student scholarships and programs.
