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!

The next step: the work. As we begin our Ground Truth experiments, we're looking for your support to raise $500 for:

  • Materials: plant seeds, growth mediums, petri dishes, fixatives, activators, bacterial cultures, stains, and more for all 3 grade levels!  
  • Safety equipment: goggles, gloves, sterilizing materials to keep our students safe.
