Science In The City

Career-Based STEM Education Workshops for Kids 6 to 18 Years Old
Scientist - Science In The City | Manifezt Foundation Science in the City

With a changing job market more and more focused on technology, a good education is paramount to future professional and financial stability.

Science in the City, our unique, extracurricular youth program, provides rigorous and career-based STEM education to students throughout Miami-Dade and Broward County.

Equal education for all is a value we keep central to the Manifez t Model, which is why our programs are completely free for all participants. Science in the City workshops bring student s of all backgrounds together to immerse them in STEM activities built around college – and career-level standards, centralized around the marvel of space exploration all while covering sciences from environmental science to coding.

Free for all children, we utilize project based lessons to ensure the participants are captivated by the possibilities STEM can offer.

Earth & Space

Often, we stare up into the night-sky and wonder about our place in the universe but we forget to look down and wonder about the unknown our own planet holds in its core. The first portion of our program teaches our students geology, climatology, and finally, astronomy.

Technology

Without technology, scientists across all fields would be immensely hindered in work, analogous to a how an artist needs a brush to paint. Technology is a scientist’s most essential tool, and this chunk of our program aims to teach students just that.

Natural Sciences

Our natural world has given the human race centuries of material to discover and study; the building blocks of matter, their places in space, and the workings of our own bodies. Chemistry, physics, biology, and anatomy help us understand the world we live in, and if not more importantly, ourselves.

Program Overview

Science In The City

Part 1 of Science in The City

Space Cadets Initiative

Events CalendarRegister To Attend

LITTER, FUEL, AND EARTH, OH MY!

Students will be able to learn about the effects of litter, combustible fuels, and other bio-hazardous material have on ecological health.

BIOLOGICAL NINJAS

This workshop will teach students about the biological makeup of viruses, bacteria, antibiotics, and bacterial resistance.

PLAT(IC) OFF! – WATER ROCKETS

Students have the ability to become engineers and create their own plastic bottle rockets.

THE DRONE ZONE

Here, we learn of how drones work, take flight, and what their application is in the modern world.

JOURNEY THROUGH SPACE

Students are introduced to our planetary neighbors and learn why Earth is the right place for the human race.

ITS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE. OH WAIT, IT IS!

As a follow-up to the water rocket experiment, this workshop covers the chemical reactions behind jet and aerospace propellent.

PORK CHOPPIN’

This workshop is designed to explore the biology of a fellow mammal. After we explore the anatomy of a pig we will then teach the effects that space and stellar travel has on the body.

ROVER MISSION

Students will be able to understand the inner mechanisms of our very own rover and how it works.

Part 2 of Science in The City

Ready for Research

Events CalendarRegister To Attend

DNA EXTRACTION

The purpose of this workshop is to get the kids familiar with genetic material and lay the foundation for future workshops.

HEREDITY

Students will be able to identify genetic variation between humans such as why there are differences in humans from shoe size to their ability to taste bitterness.

GENE EXPRESSION

This workshop teaches students the functional role of DNA and RNA in living organisms.

EVOLUTION

This workshop goes over the process of evolution and how natural selection shapes the development of animals.

VIRUSES AND BACTERIA

In this experiment, the kids will infect their antibiotic resistant bacteria with a bacteriophage.

BIODIVERSITY

Students will be able to identify different species or even kingdoms, understand how diverse living organisms are, as well as know the three different kingdoms of life.

EPIDEMIOLOGY

In this workshop students will do a water test experiment to demonstrate how a pseudo antigen, HCL, can be quickly distributed and show how diseases or infections can spread a certain way.

RESEARCH METHODS

This workshop is designed to recap what students have learned in the Ready for Research program. They will learn the application and techniques behind different research methods by doing their own gel electrophoresis experiment.
