Being Healthy on Earth and in Space!
A longtime partnership with the African American Ethnic Academy (see below for details), A Celebration of Life XXVI: Being Healthy on Earth & in Space! is a summer program for students entering grades 5-8. We hope to offer an in-person session at the BTC Institute on weekday mornings for two weeks: Monday, June 21- Friday July 2, 2021 . However, should health guidelines/circumstances dictate otherwise, we will offer a virtual version of the program during the same time frame.
Hands-on activities, in outdoor, classroom and laboratory settings, will be utilized to engage students’ interest in science and STEM careers. This will include a series of activities related to (1) healthy living on earth (2) healthy living in space (3) related STEM careers and training and (4) historic and contemporary STEM professionals of color.
Many thanks to the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium, a member institution of the national network of Space Grant Consortia funded by NASA’s National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, for Special Initiatives Program funding to support these efforts!
The fee for the in-person program is $200, scholarships are available for students who qualify for free or reduced lunch. Registration form coming soon!
