Message from the SEE Project Director

Partners & Collaborators: Delta Research and Educational Foundation (DREF), Delta Sigma Theta (DST) Sorority and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) joined forces in late 1999 to bring together the strengths of each organization to the Science and Everyday Experiences (SEE) Project. We build upon the tax favored status of DREF, the wide reach of the over 900 chapters of DST and the sustained history and knowledge of AAAS in the science arena to forge the partnership for the SEE initiative.

This model of partnering and collaboration is one for all SEE Leaders to follow, to extend the reach of SEE. It can indeed extend the impact of informal science education through leveraging the respective competencies of each of the collaborators. SEE has used the network of chapters from Okinawa to the Virgin Islands and many of the continental US states in between to implement an informal education initiative to improve mathematic and science skills of the youth we have touched. Dissemination of vital information has been made easy through the Delta network.

At the local level, consider the organizations in your communities where SEE informal education activity can be conducted. Join forces with other community groups that have similar resources and educational focus. When selecting an effective partner look at these attributes:

  • Educational entities (science centers and museums, as well as daycare, preschool, and after-school programs)
  • Businesses (mentoring programs, Big Brothers, Big Sisters)
  • Healthcare organizations
  • Community-based organizations (boys and girls clubs, fraternities and sororities)
  • Faith-based (church bazaars, picnics)

The possibilities are endless. Seek out committed leaders with similar goals and values with the available resources to make SEE more than just a title but a way of life.
