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.
Project Exploration believes that all children should be allowed to explore their curiosity and learn new things. We are proud to introduce you to a young man that is doing just that!
Project Exploration is pleased to announce the relaunching of our Science Digest program! In partnership with Chicago Youth Centers and through funding from the Hive Fund for Connected Learning and the Chicago Community Trust, we will be expanding on this original PE program!
Science Digest originally emerged as a monthly program to engage Project Exploration students and alumni in exploring a wide range of STEM disciplines, while working alongside STEM professionals.
Ms. Kiara Byrd, who started as a STEM Facilitator for Sisters4Science at three of our schools in 2014 – 2015, has returned and taken on the role of Program Coordinator to help increase our program quality and student engagement!
