SynAPSE - Synergistic Activity Program for Science Education

We have recently established the Synergistic Activity Program for Science Education ("SynAPSE") designed for our University of Scranton research students to conduct learning activities at a local Scranton elementary school. The name derives from biological systems, where synapses (especially between nerve cells) allow individual cells to interact, communicate, and influence both their growth and survival; learning and memory formation involves the growth and long-term maintenance of synapses.  The program will focus on research students from the College of Arts and Sciences who are in STEM research laboratories.

More Information about the program and activities can be found here!

 

 

In October, students and faculty in the SynAPSE program visited McNichols Plaza Elementary School to teach kids about science! Click here to read more about the visit.
