Project Exploration creates transformative learning experiences, pathways, and a community for youth underrepresented in STEM, especially low-income students, students of color, and young women, allowing them to explore STEM careers and equip them with the necessary skills, practices, and mindset needed for lifelong learning.
Since 1999, PE has worked to change the face of science. With equity at our core, we serve youth from communities historically underrepresented in the STEM fields and recruit students who are curious and interested in STEM but may face challenges accessing high-quality programs, such as academic prerequisites or program fees. PE makes STEM education accessible through:
- Our out-of-school time Youth-Science Pathway (YSP) programs empower and mentor underrepresented minority youth.
- Our Community-building strategies for schools, students, and families through leadership in the Chicago STEM Pathways Cooperative (STEM Co-op).
