Project Exploration (PE) works to find ways to engage our participants in real-world and authentic experiences. In our middle school programs, we provide trips to various STEM rich institutions in Chicago to build their understanding of STEM in everyday careers. With our high school programs that focus on a STEM specific discipline, identifying authentic experiences becomes more creative. However, with effective partnerships we find organizations willing and ready to help us fulfill this goal!
“This last week was sadly the last week for the Forensic Investigators Program. I’ve truly enjoyed showing these students what Forensic Science is all about!”
“This week, the Forensic Investigators learned about Forensic Anthropology and Forensic Entomology!”
“The start of the third week, the students learned about bloodstain pattern analysis.”
This week was our second week of program, where we finally got to the fun stuff!
