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 offered an in-person session at the BTC Institute on weekday mornings for two weeks: Monday, June 21- Friday July 2, 2021.
Hands-on activities, in outdoor, classroom and laboratory settings, were utilized to engage students’ interest in science and STEM careers. This included 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.
