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.
Heather shared advice to her younger self and to current Project Exploration students, saying “there’s no exact and linear path through life or through a career. There are so many ways to apply your skills and passions! Don’t be afraid to take risks and pursue opportunities, even if they don’t quite fit with the norm.

Reflection of Knowledge is a way that the students in our Sisters4Science and Brothers4Science programs to be recognized and given the opportunity to lead scientific presentations to family, friends, and corporate guests.
