New City Kids

Biochemistry Literacy for Kid will be used in a new and unique way, as part of an urban peer-mentoring and tutoring program. The Jersey City New City Kids will deploy the curriculum in several after school centers around the city, where high school mentors will instruct small groups of elementary and middle school students, giving them the opportunity to experience enriched STEM learning. The effort will be spearheaded by my wonderful student Kimberly Portuguez, who initiated the project.
