Such a wonderful event for the refugee kids today!!! 35 beautiful kids! We always fall in love with each of the kids we serve. We love to hear and witness the stories of the kids engaging and igniting sparks of interest.
One little girl was having a tough day studying English with her tutor and the tutor told Jelly that the little girl was feeling very frustrated. But, she said as soon as the little girl rotated through the science stations her demeanor changed from withdrawn to excited and she wanted to learn more and more. This has been Jelly’s drive since the start of her nonprofit, moments where we can show kids their own amazing power they have within themselves. A big thank you to Refugee Support Services, Catholic Charities, Indian Creek Elementary and our incredible volunteers! This could not have been successful without you! We treasure all of you! ♥️

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.
