I was so excited this morning! I finished a conference call with the Program Director at GEHC. He is willing to partner with me to provide a science summer trip for the girls from Jesse's House Shelter. I'm crossing my fingers for Treetop Quest to be willing to partner with us, too!! It was a great call and I was excited to tell him that one of his exhibits he had in the museum a while back called Power of Children really inspired me to write my speech, "Kids Can Do Great Things". I really do believe kids CAN do GREAT things!!!❤️
My name is Angelica Krubeck and I am 12 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.
