STEM in the Community: Lemon Grove

Two young women in hijabs inspect a robotics craft at a Fleet Science Center booth within the community.

San Diego STEAM leaders bring together in-school and after-school learning. 

We’re seeing positive progress in K–12 education, especially in terms of whole community involvement. Case in point: Thriving Students Lemon Grove brings together leaders in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math to then connect school-day programming with after-school programming. The program’s students and their families largely will drive the format and content.  
 

STEM in the Community: National City

You already know that the Fleet Science Center takes very seriously its mission of connecting people of all ages to the power of science. But how much do you know about its community-centered science initiatives?  
 
Let us introduce you to Wraparound Services for STEM Learning (WSSL), one such initiative.

NASA successfully crashed a spacecraft into an asteroid on Monday, September 26. Why did they want to do that? The answer is in the name of the mission.

On Feb. 3, NASA announced that the first photons had made their way through the James Webb Space Telescope. This moment marked another milestone in a decades-long effort to expand our view of the universe. I first encountered the Webb 11 years ago at the USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C. There, under a sign that read “Seeing the First Light,” a group from NASA was sharing its dreams for the famed Hubble Space Telescope’s successor.
