Strengthen Our STEM!
Help Us Raise $50,000 By December 31st!
This fall PE’s new Board Chair Judy Lubin is helping kick off our 2016 Annual Fund campaign with an exciting opportunity to raise $50,000 by the end of this year. Every dollar up to $25,000 will be matched by a generous family foundation!
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.
