Get To Know Us

The mission of Project SYNCERE (Supporting Youth's Needs with Core Engineering Research Experiments) is to prepare the minds and create pathways for underrepresented and disadvantaged students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Project SYNCERE provides a curriculum that integrates science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through the use of project-based learning.  Project SYNCERE's staff assists and coaches students in scientific inquiry, directing them to deeper levels of understanding. These actions have helped students by raising their test scores, improving their critical thinking and problem solving skills and increasing their overall enthusiasm for school. Students use prior knowledge and technology to solve real world problems. The goal is to produce successful self-directed learners who are equipped to excel in the global market.

Project SYNCERE is designed to serve students in grades 4-12. Targeting students early gives them a stronger scientific foundation and a head start in building a scientific career. Project SYNCERE utilizes the resources of the community by working with target schools and other community organizations to implement our various programs.
