Science Alliance is an after-school program available in all SRVUSD high schools created to pair curious and motivated fifth grade students (buddies) with high school students (mentors). The mentor will encourage and guide their buddy on a journey of science and methodical inquiry, under the careful guidance of a credentialed teacher at one of the high schools. Science Alliance helps prepare the fifth graders for middle school lab science and teaches positive role-modeling skills to high school mentors.
The year-long journey includes six buddy-mentor meetings, interesting lessons and learning opportunities. The program concludes with a district-wide science fair to be held in March where buddies share the project that they worked on throughout the program. The program has been widely recognized as helping to prepare both fifth graders and high school students for future success.
Registration will open in September 2021.
