Developing Artists, Scholars, Warriors...and Astronauts?

Urban Promise Academy is the first Oakland public school ever accepted into the National Center for Earth and Science Education's Space Flight Student Experiments Program! Watch the video below to see kids' reaction when they heard the news!

Thank you to those who supported our first Indiegogo campaign that funded the materials for our students' experiments. Our next challenge was raising money to send a team of students to D.C. where they would present their winning project at the Smithsonian Museum. Thanks to all who donated, they made it!
