We were able to engage around 80 children into the field of STEAM during our Science Week for MentorME!!!! I am especially thankful for the team of 10 youth SSK volunteers that served this week. Also, thank you to Mrs. Janene for covering our youth that called in sick! You’re a lifesaver! Thank you to Mrs. Elisa and Mrs. Silvia for providing this opportunity for us! Love you both! I hope to do this every year for you.♥️ Can’t wait to see you in May to do “messy” science activities!!!!
My name is Angelica Krubeck and I am 13 years old. I love science. It's one of my favorite things to do. When I was 8, one of my friends opened up to me. She shared how she grew up in a shelter and how hard every day was. After that conversation, I decided I wanted to help kids like her in some way. Science I love and kids I love, so put them together and it just makes sense. I knew that some kids out there don't get the chance to be creative with science, like how I do. I strongly believe that no kid should be without the education and enjoyment of science! Not only does it help them get away from their worries for a little while, but it also provides education to them. I hope to inspire kids to do great things, to succeed in science, and to develop a love for science despite the challenges they are facing in their life.
