After-School Science Clubs

science clubOrganized out-of-school-time activities have been shown to be particularly effective in supporting inner-city youth. Positive experiences during the K-12 years are also critical to developing a lasting enthusiasm about science. The Chicago MRSEC organizes weekly after-school science clubs to bring science experiences to our neighborhood K-12 community. Led by our post-docs and graduate students, these voluntary clubs explore key concepts critical to future explorations of materials and materials processing and enable small-group mentoring of students who are highly interested in science.
