by a paycheck. She conceived the myLab Program to provide an environment where kids and undergraduates could informally gain hands-on, practical engineering experience while having fun. The first time she offered basic robotics and programming, she conducted outreach to low-income communities to diversify the pipeline for STEM, and was shocked to learn the low level of science they were being taught in schools. She then realized myLab program's true mission — to provide engineering-based projects where undergraduates and underrepresented youth work together to innovate. Saura also teaches summer high school courses on campus, inspiring youth to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) fields based on her passion, intellect and ability to inspire and show kids how cool STEM really is.

Saura works with over 400 kids a year. Her first group of kids came from the Town and Country Village Learning Center (TCLC). To inspire this population on many levels, Saura turned to the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) for support and is now the adviser for TCLC's Jr NSBE. Saura was invited to speak at TEDx San Diego in 2011 to share her efforts to inspire passion in engineering and diversifying the STEM fields.
