Advance STEM futures
We are always looking for partnerships that help us enrich our student experience, especially opportunities for our students to explore high-demand STEM career pathways. If you or your organization are interested in partnering, please reach out to Julianna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- SPARK 2023: This year, UP had their first ever STEM day, SPARK: Day of STEM Exploration at UP Academy Dorchester. Together with partners, including universities and STEM oriented companies, we provided unforgettable STEM experiences for over 500 UP students in grades 4-8 across our schools. Our kids got to learn about cyber security by encrypting and hacking, aerospace engineering by building and launching rockets, and so much more.
