SEE (Science and Everyday Experiences) Initiative

In 2002, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and the Delta Research and Educational Foundation (DREF), in partnership with the AAAS Directorate for Education and Human Resources Programs, began developing and implementing the Science and Everyday Experiences (SEE) Initiative, an informal science education project funded by the National Science Foundation.

PGCAC’s SEE program is centered on hands-on learning that provides the opportunity to learn by doing–helping students to acquire knowledge and skills aside from the traditional instruction using books and lectures.  With hands-on learning activities, students experiment and develop conceptual knowledge as well as expose themselves to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Students discover the connection between everyday experiences in science and mathematics and the major role played in their everyday lives.

The SEE program is designed to provide intense focus on mathematics, science, and technology support to African American students in grades K-8. The program also is designed to encourage African American students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) courses. The SEE program brings these opportunities to the forefront by making science accessible
