EDsnaps summer students and counselors-in Training are sharing their real-life STEM experiences during the summer of 2018.
With one (1) word, all our students share with you their impression of our not-so standard STEM Program. Our counselors-in training share their newly gained insight about leadership and how to become a powerful role model.
The last day of our 3-week FREE summer program concluded with the presentation of their showcases. Students demonstrated both their newly gained soft and hard skills.
Thank you to all the supporters, donors, sponsors and volunteers that made these programs happen.

EDsnaps Programs will use the collected #data to work with students on #STEM and #STEAM projects throughout 2018 and beyond.
Our goal is to share the collected databases to increase exposure to and education of the exciting world of datamining, data analysis and datamanagement combined with problemsolving.
Our vision is that this exposure contributes to lower the barrier of entry to enrollment in #STEM oriented classes and leads to an increased #diversity in the future #STEM workforce.

EDsnaps Goes "Global" and Beyond
January 26, 2018
Cited from the InnovaSpace Website: "Kids2Mars Mission 1 gave a little taste of a Mars analog mission to children from 11 nations - enabling them to pose questions about Mars and Mars exploration to the Commander and crew of the Mars Society Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS), set in the Utah USA desert. The analog astronauts of Crew 185, led by biomedical engineer and final-year PhD candidate Ilaria Cinelli, were isolated for two weeks in December 2017, where they conducted scientific and research activities, and existed on limited supplies under conditions that simulated the harsh environment of the planet Mars."
