For over 20 years Mission Science has provided authentic STEM experiences for over 6,000 elementary and middle school students, many of whom have pursued careers in STEM fields. Mission Science is a hands-on, minds-on school-based STEM program, primarily supported by USC Good Neighbors, where students become “tinkerers and makers” and work on projects, experiments and activities while learning STEM concepts and skills in an informal atmosphere. The sessions are led by undergraduate USC Viterbi students who design projects and document student success while serving as positive role models in STEM.
Mission Science currently serves over 400 elementary and middle school students at 16 schools.
Applications will open in spring: check back in May.
