The Raccoons is an online community that empowers students who are eager to learn by providing an environment for them to explore, learn, build, and create. With the sudden changes our world is facing, now it is more important than ever to facilitate a general knowledge of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) skills, as those are increasingly important to almost all fields.
