Making a Pathway to Science



Here’s a crew of budding scientists from Nathanael Greene and Roger Williams middle schools in Providence! They got involved in a Crusade program last fall called Pathways for Success in Science and Technology. The afterschool program, delivered in collaboration with the University of Rhode Island, is designed to help Crusaders see how science plays a major role in our lives. Students who participate get to practice their skills in math, science, and technology and build their academic confidence. This year they worked with a hands-on curriculum called “Capture the Universe.” They explored how telescopes work, requested astronomy images from real telescopes, and learned how to process those images. They also visited the Museum of Natural Science, Planetarium, and Botanical Garden at Roger Williams Park to end their great session.
