Harrison and The Pearl Project Institute for Innovation in STEM Literacy have partnered to make your summer a real Breeze. If you have a youngster 8 to 12 years old who love robots, building stuff, swimming, field trips, and space exploration, then join us July 8-12, 2019 for a space theme week of fun, The Road To Mars.
The Pearl Project Institute offers several summer programs for students focusing on STEM concepts and practices.
