This fall, we have been privileged to be able to send BridgeKIDS to the Buena Vista University Science Center during the after school program. This initiative has been made possible by Dr. Lisa Mellman and her freshman seminar science students, and we are very grateful!
The BridgeKIDS from Seneca Center area visit campus and participate in activities and experiments led by BVU students.
This type of program is an excellent opportunity for BridgeKIDS to spend time on a university campus and to get excited about science!
Research has shown consistently that promoting a strong college-going environment and attitude early on in a student’s life increases the likelihood of him/her attending and graduating from college. We believe each of these students has that potential, and we are happy to work together with BVU to encourage college expectation and to give them some enriching experiences in science as well!
