Science Explorers in Nature
Science Explorers in Nature is a free summer science enrichment program designed for Lake County youth from underserved communities who are currently in grades 6–8. Students spend one month exploring the natural world and learning about potential careers in the sciences.
Students from selected schools may enroll in the four-week session that takes place at Greenbelt Cultural Center in North Chicago Monday–Friday, 9 am–3 pm. A school bus route with stops at participating schools provides transportation starting as early as 7:30 am to bring students to the Center by 9 am. Students are provided with all materials they need to participate, including free snacks and lunch every day of the program.
