About Project Exploration
Project Exploration is a nationally recognized nonprofit science education and youth development organization whose mission is to empower and mentor underrepresented youth through science, technology and engineering out-of-school-time experiential programs led by university students and skilled professionals. Project Exploration engages Chicago Public School students in hands-on experiences with real science and real scientists, and provides critical leadership in the national conversation about out-of-school time STEM education. Founded in 1999, Project Exploration (PE) uses STEM education to address challenges to equity, access, and opportunity in public education, higher education, and the professional STEM world. Working with youth in some of Chicago’s most challenging neighborhoods, we know that most of them have very few opportunities to understand science as a part of their lives, or to imagine that they could ever be scientists and engineers. Our student-centered approach promotes a community of practice that includes youth, STEM professionals, and PE’s STEM facilitators. We ask them to tell us what they are interested in learning and put real science activities, experiments, and opportunities in their hands. Most importantly, we introduce them to active scientists and engineers who are mentors and role models. These long-term relationships empower youth to become active partners in their education and development, encouraging them to study science-related topics that they find interesting.
