In 2013, Mind Trekkers partnered with Michigan Tech’s GEAR UP program to
create four after-school clubs in local schools (Hancock, L'Anse, Lake
Linden, and Calumet). With the support of a major grant from the State
Farm Youth Advisory Board, the students spent the year working with
college mentors to learn cool hands-on activities. Plus, each school
received an allocation of funds to purchase demos and materials to keep
in their science classrooms. In May 2014, the high school students took
charge - just like our Mind Trekkers roadshow - and hosted an event for
area 4th and 5th graders.
