Providence Science Outreach

Providence Science Outreach

Providence Science Outreach provides hands-on afterschool lesson to get elementary students to enjoy science and build critical thinking skills (at William D'Abate and Asa Messer Elementary Schools). Providence Science Outreach sends Brown students into Providence elementary schools to organize hands-on science projects with kids. Student volunteers try to ignite interest in science by showing children that science is exciting, fun and useful. By serving as role models and organizing simple experiments, student volunteers show children that anyone, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or age, can succeed in science. Projects have included building bridges, growing plants, testing electricity, and making ice cream.
