“When you launch in a rocket, you’re not really flying that rocket. “The deeper the journey into inner space, the further the possibilities in outer space.” – this is very important – so you don’t have to carry the return fuel when you go there.” “Rocket science is tough, and rockets have a way of failing.”
Project Exploration hosted its 20th annual Reflection of Knowledge at Cisco Meraki on Thursday, May 16, 2019. This year, the Reflection of Knowledge brought together nearly 50 youth from Sisters4Science, Brothers4Science, and the West Side STEM Learning Center. Each program shared their favorite project from the year, presenting their findings and highlighting the challenges and how they worked through them.
Project Exploration is celebrating 20 years of Changing the Face of Science and featuring students, staff and a host of others impacted by our work. Meet Jameela Jafri!
There are also potential dips in academic achievement during extended times away from the classroom over the winter season. “Similar to summer learning loss, winter learning loss tends to have a greater impact on students who might have less access to scholastic resources at home (Education Post).” At the West Side STEM Learning Center (SLC), Project Exploration successfully hosted its first Winter Break Program on January 2-4 in an effort to keep students engaged during the out-of-school time.
