More than an idea … More than a partnership.

Together we can leverage the creative and innovative programs that are happening in the neighborhood to create a community of science for all residents. Partnering together will broaden and expand exciting hands-on science activities and exhibits at schools, libraries, community centers and other gathering places to foster and further connections to science. Logan Heights and Barrio Logan partners are raising awareness of STEM education by bringing an educational science opportunity to the neighborhood every week throughout the year. This collaboration will create rich environments for science enjoyment, teaching and learning.

By establishing collaborative support systems and networks for STEM learning, we can spark budding scientific thinkers of all ages.

Contact us to learn how you can support this community-led initiative!
