Changing the Face of Science

Project Exploration has been at the forefront of impacting under-served communities and youth by delivering STEM education programs and influencing a citywide conversation that aims to combat STEM deserts through partnership development. At the core of PE’s mission we see STEM education as an imperative and social justice issue.
