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.

Cisco Meraki Helping to Build a Future of STEM Leaders

Project Exploration values the connection students make to real STEM experiences. Creating opportunities to expose students to STEM mentors and STEM-related environments has been a hallmark of Project Exploration programs.
