Project Exploration

Project Exploration has been at the forefront of impacting under-served communities and youth by delivering STEM education programs and influencing a citywide conversation to combat STEM deserts for more than 21 years. We see STEM education as an imperative and social justice issue. If you are a student, we invite you to join our free, high-quality STEM programs ready to explore. To members of our community, please join us in helping the next generation of trailblazers in science, technology, engineering, and math reach their full potential.

 

Together, we are changing the face of science!
