Science Fair Volunteers

Achieving real results for our kids

Aspire! "Theory of Change" is based on the Early Warning! and Early Warning! Confirmed reports on education by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.  
Aspire! bolsters upper elementary students' reading by providing targeted daily support, using guided reading strategies based on the research of Fountas and Pinell (1986). Our evidence-based methods work. For each of the last two years, over 90% of our students have improved their reading skills. 

Aspire! also bolsters STEM/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) skills and reinforces general academic content through regular project-based learning activities.
