Culturally relevant education extends
beyond the classroom.
Our team at CRSci believes that underrepresented students need more exposure to STEM careers early in their secondary education. It is simply not enough to expose them to culturally relevant curriculum in the classroom. They must first-handedly see representations of themselves in college and vocational career pathways.
CRSci's goal is to obtain funding through grants to sponsor student field trips throughout Atlanta. Some potential STEM destinations are the Georgia Aquarium, Delta Flight Museum, Atlanta Zoo, and iFLY.
CRSci Aquarium Trip
On May 4th, 2022, 100 environmental and biology students attended a field trip to the Georgia Aquarium. All students received:
Admission into the aquarium
Lunch in the picnic area
Attendance to the dolphin show
Attendance to the Occupational Careers Tour
This trip exposed students to the plethora of STEM careers offered for employment at the aquarium, such as animal training, ecosystem maintenance, and veterinary medicine.
