Presented by Jacquelyn Duran (MPhil ’09), Director of Enrichment and Outreach Services at The Hollingworth Center; Michele Damiano (MA ’07), Co-Director of the Summer Science Program for Children; and Lisa Wright (EdD ’87), Director of The Hollingworth Center
STEM opportunities are essential in the early years. For the past two decades The Hollingworth Center has created a developmentally appropriate and inquiry-based science program for primary-grade children.

Over 600 graduate students have honed their science pedagogy and carried this experience with them into urban classrooms.
