Project Exploration

Project Exploration programs aim to foster a lifelong relationship with science, technology, engineering and math by providing students with a dynamic set of experiences through Youth-Science Pathways. Youth-Science Pathway programs leverage out-of-school time to provide access to STEM education for students who may not be engaged by traditional schooling. The program’s goals are to increase integrative STEM out-of-school time learning experiences. Organized around three phases of scientific inquiry (Discover, Explore, and Pursue), Youth-Science Pathways is a set of fluid, non-linear programs that reflect students’ emerging skills, curiosity, and ambition; and encourages them to take ownership of their learning, become active members of the scientific community, and invest in a lifelong practice of inquiry.
