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.

As a platinum sponsor of the Summer of Dreams program, Siemens is helping to bring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education to homeless students in Central Florida.

In partnership with Orlando Science Center, Siemens engineers volunteered to lead an interactive, hands-on Discovery Lab that featured in-depth design challenges based on engineering principles. One of the projects taught participants how to build a load-bearing bridge.

Now in its third year, Summer of Dreams was founded to fill an unmet need for food, shelter and supervision for homeless students when school is not in session. The program provides two meals a day, activities, school supplies, academic and STEM-enrichment, and mentoring — as well as financial counseling for parents, offered by founding sponsor Fifth Third Bank.
