Collaborative USC Project Connects Kids with World-Class Educators


What started as a way for local kids to learn from USC professors has evolved into a chance for students around the country to gain access to extraordinary academic opportunities. It’s called The Discovery Project, and Elizabeth Currid-Halkett from the USC Price School of Public Policy, Sandra Kaplan from the USC Rossier School of Education and Leana Golubchik from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering founded the program together in 2019, with instrumental program support from Alyssa Lopez of USC Rossier and funding from the Provost’s Office.

Kaplan shared, “The vision of The Discovery Project was to introduce and provide an advanced orientation to subjects and professional areas that are not part of the basic or regular grade-level school curriculum. We hoped that students’ introduction to various subject areas would enable them to recognize and develop the interests and abilities for future independent study." Read More
