Project Exploration Helps Students Soar
For 24 years, trailblazers in medicine, computer programming, engineering, paleontology, and more discovered their spark in Project Exploration’s programs. They are changing the face of STEM and dismantling the notions of who can excel in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). At the same time, PE is dismantling barriers in Chicago and beyond which prevent underrepresented students from exploring, pursuing, and persisting at opportunities in STEM.
Project Exploration creates transformative learning experiences, pathways, and a community for youth underrepresented in STEM, especially low-income students, students of color and young women, allowing them to explore STEM careers and equip them with the necessary skills, practices, and mindset needed for lifelong learning.
