Partnership Between Young Black Motivated Kings and Queens and Citizens Science Lab Set to Boost STEAM Education in Penn Hills

The Young Black Motivated Kings and Queens organization has partnered with the Citizens Science Lab to provide STEAM education to dozens of kids in Penn Hills over the next five years. Dr. Andre Samuel, founder of the Citizens Science Lab, spearheaded an experiment that showcased the types of activities the young participants will engage in at the community center on a daily basis.

The partnership between these two organizations is particularly important for black and underserved communities, as it addresses a national issue: the lack of African Americans holding PhDs in the biological and life sciences. By introducing more black students to the field of science, this partnership aims to address issues that directly impact their communities.

The Young Black Motivated Kings and Queens organization offers after-school programming and summer camps for children in elementary through high school at an affordable cost for families. With approximately 60 kids participating in their daily after-school activities, the addition of science programming will enhance the educational opportunities available to these students.
