CASE: Community Ambassadors in Science Exploration CASE Activities

In July 2005, CASE was awarded the "Partnership and Collaborator Award" by The LEAP Academy University Charter School Parent Council. This award was in appreciation of CASE's commitment and dedication to the education of the children and families of the LEAP Academy University Charter School.

Ambassadors were trained by museum educators to conduct hands-on science activities, including theory, techniques, and applications of inquiry learning.



Community Partner organizations around the Philadelphia/Camden area presented over 70 hands-on workshops to families.
