Judy (from storytelling website)“The Board of Directors is united in our mission to raise financial support for PE in 2016. That’s why we are launching our 2016 Annual Campaign, reaching out to supporters new and old, asking you to join us in support of students like Niyah, one of our recent PE students. I hope you will read about her and some of our accomplishents below, and consider helping us raise $50,000 by the end of 2015!” ~ Judy Lubin, PhD., Chair of Board of Directors

April 17 - 5 rotated

Your support will have a strong impact on students like Niyah, an 8th grader in the Logan Square community who participated in six programs and field trips last year, spending a total of 188 hours with us. Like many of her PE peers, she studied physics, statistics, chemistry, solar energy, and photosynthesis. Her experiences ranged from building a radio, creating her own virus, practicing her surgical skills and building rockets. She developed strong relationships with both science and women scientists which empowered her to build her self-confidence and increase her leadership, teamwork and communication skills. Read a short interview with Niyah’s mom.
