As a journalist, I am excited to share the news about a new five-year partnership between Citizens Science Lab and Young Black Motivated Kings and Queens organization in Penn Hills. This partnership aims to provide dozens of children with a STEAM education.

Dr. Andre Samuel, founder of Citizens Science Lab, led an experiment to highlight the activities that the youth will participate in five days a week at the community center. The focus is on increasing the number of black scientists in underserved communities, as only less than 5% of PhDs in the biological and life sciences are held by African Americans nationally.

Young Black Motivated Kings and Queens offers after-school programs and summer camps for children in elementary through high school at affordable prices for families. Currently, about 60 children are served with science programs every day after school. Families interested in learning more about how their children can join after school programs or summer programs can visit IBMKK for additional information.
