As of this week Sisters4Science is back and going strong in 2013! Middle-school girls in three Chicago public schools can look forward an exciting semester filled with scientific experiments, guest scientists, and lots and lots of discovery.
We are excited to announce our PRIVATE AUCTION! Thanks to a generous donor we have four of the hottest tickets in town available for friends of Project Exploration. The auction will run March 11-March 22nd at 5pm CST.
“The way Project Exploration combines youth development and science education is, bar none, the most exciting idea I’ve encountered in a long time,” Natasha says. “Now that I’ve lead some Sisters4Science sessions, it is so clear to me how important and powerful the relationships between the students and us adult role-models is. We’re really engaging them at their level, and that’s why these programs are so successful. I’m really looking forward to meeting more students and seeing this approach at work in different contexts.”
