Project Exploration has a history of bringing scientists and students together to investigate real science and build meaningful relationships. This model has a positive impact for everyone involved, including practicing scientists, whom we know are often looking for ways to share their expertise and passion for the sciences with young people.
Katrina Miller a University of Chicago Physics PhD candidate and particle astrophysics researcher from Meza, Arizona was drawn to Project Exploration’s motto, “Changing the Face of Science”. As she reflects on her own experience she would have loved to have been in a program that introduced her to the sciences when she was younger.
Project Exploration has been committed to developing STEM learning opportunities in the Austin community and thrilled to bring Sisters4Science to Spencer Elementary Technology Academy. Arionna an 8th grader at Spencer joined Sisters4Science because the name peaked her interest, she was curious, she loves chemistry and wanted to try something new.
Project Exploration (PE) values providing our students with the opportunity to celebrate their successes and share what they have learned with their peers, parents, STEM Facilitators and community.
