Sylvan Heights received a Student Science Enrichment Program (SSEP) grant from Burroughs-Wellcome Fund to develop and host a three-year STEM program, called Soaring into Science. Our aim is to serve 150 rising 9th graders through a collaborative partnership between Sylvan Heights Bird Park and regional charter school, KIPP: Gaston College Preparatory (KIPP: GCP). Soaring into Science engages students in an intensive two-week summer session, as well as autumn and spring Saturday academies, and acts as a learning bridge program to help with the often difficult transition between middle and high school.
More information about Soaring Into Science coming soon.
