Acclaimed Science Center, Storefront Science, Reinvents Itself as a “Movable Science Feast”

Commencing January 2014, Storefront Science will be offering their acclaimed science programs at five different sites in the winter and hopes to expand that through the spring. By partnering with schools and community centers, Dr. Ardizzone will be able to give more children access to much-needed high-quality science programming.

"Schools and after-school programs are realizing the need for more STEM-based programs but few have the expertise to create something. Storefront Science can help!” states Ardizzone.

New York, New York (PRWEB) December 17, 2013

StoSci On the Go, is piloting a new after-school partnership model with two schools in District 6 in New York City: Muscota New School and PS/IS 278. Both principals, Camille Wallin and Maureen Guido understand the value of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education and are pleased to offer an after-school science program at their sites. Dr. Ardizzone hopes to collaborate with additional schools around the city that need science enrichment. “Schools and after-school programs are realizing the need for more STEM-based programs but few have the expertise to create something. Storefront Science can help!” states Ardizzone. To assist with this, Dr. Ardizzone not only provides after-school programs, but also works with area schools in professional and curriculum development.

Hoping to create a long-lasting STEM initiative for the upper Manhattan community, StoSci On the Go is partnering with the YM&YWHA of Washington Heights and Inwood. "The Y of Washington Heights is so excited to partner with Storefront Science. When I read on DNAinfo that Storefront Science was closing its physical space, the Y seemed like a natural landing spot for StoSci 2.0. After observing Dr. A with kids, I saw that Storefront Science had a talented educator with a unique approach to science learning. The Y is committed to providing our community's youth with interesting and affordable experiences. It was a natural partnership," states Jon Zeftel, Supervisor of Youth Enrichment Programs.
