JP Morgan Chase has awarded Orlando Science Center $90,000 to continue the Science Literacy Program at Evans High School in Orlando. Now in its fourth year, the program will focus on chemistry education and strive to increase the number of students who seek further education in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields.
Orlando Science Center’s Kellen Nixon, Director of Educational Development, said, “We are extremely grateful for the educational partnership we’ve established with JP Morgan Chase. Together, we are positively changing student attitudes toward science learning at Evans.”
The Evans Science Literacy Program works with both students and their teachers through hands-on workshops and teacher professional development classes. Student workshops include interactive demonstrations and experiments that tie to real world applications and careers.
