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 middle school students through a collaborative partnership between Sylvan Heights Bird Park and Halifax County Schools. Soaring into Science engages students in Autumn and Spring Saturday Academies and acts as a learning bridge program to help with the often difficult transition between middle and high school.
