Nerd HQ was founded by Zachary Levi to provide an amazing and unique fan experience during ComicCon. It occurred annually for seven years and raised over 2 million dollars for charitable causes.
Zac has now turned Nerd HQ into a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and its purpose is two-fold. First, Nerd HQ will again organize events and have a charitable partner attached to raise money for their cause, namely Active Minds that provides mental health awareness and education for young adults.
Simultaneously at these events, Nerd HQ will be providing STEAM "edu-tainment" experiences and provide STEAM education to the youth and their adult counterparts in attendance, employing project-based learning to spark an interest and lifelong love of the arts and sciences .
Additionally, beyond organizing events to further charitable causes, Nerd HQ will also use donations to provide scholarships and grants to children and adults to further their education and empower them in their future.
