Our mission is to use science, technology and engineering to develop persistent curiosity and to show that knowledge is empowering.
Gathering and evaluating program data is critical to our understanding of our program’s effectiveness. We undertake this task continually, and contribute regularly to academic discourse via publications and conference presentations.
We strive to carry out pre and post assessments, mid-program surveys, and long-term impact assessments for each program participant. Our learning goals are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards.
We have been awarded a five-year NSF grant (called Be a Scientist!) to measure the longitudinal impact of our program on our Family Science Course participants.
