What is the DCIBL Project?
The DCIBL (DC Inquiry-Based Learning) Project is a pilot program make more young people and youth development practitioners comfortable with and engaged in STEM after school.
What is the Turning up the Sound on Science Event and Resource Fair?
An intrepid band of young people and youth workers representing a cohort of five community-based organizations are concluding a six-month journey into hands-on science exploration with DCIBL. The first two phases of their exploration – hands-on experimenting with forces and motion and using the same inquiry principles in creating their own experiments – are now culminating in a celebration of what they’ve learned and a gathering place where other youth-serving organizations can connect with exciting STEM resources and opportunities.
