"Science in Society brings a philosophy and culture focused on mentoring, meeting youth where they are, combining opportunities for both action and reflection, a flexibility and willingness to create units that work for Y.O.U." says Casey Varela, Manager of Strategic Partnerships at Y.O.U, one of the key partners in the project. "The skills learned through this program not only prepare our youth for a changing economy where STEM fields are continuing to grow but also gives them 21st-century skills like communication, creativity, collaboration and critical thinking needed for pose-secondary and life success."
Junior Science Club explores all scientific fields, including biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics, and teaches kids the basic skills needed to be an observant and curious scientist. Junior Science Club runs quarterly throughout the school year.
