Bringing science research opportunities to underrepresented groups
Founded in 2016, Opportunity X is dedicated to bringing science research opportunities to underrepresented and low-resource groups. We aim to accomplish this by sharing our knowledge of STEM and scientific research with middle school students in our community, through both leading school enrichment programs and holding library workshops.
We partner with middle schools with underrepresented students. We start research programs (provided cost-free) at these schools to educate students about STEM and guide them through the entire research process.
At each school program, we hold weekly after-school research workshops, where we lead fun experiments and teach our students the fundamentals of conducting research.
Through our school programs and workshops, we guide our students through their own research projects, which they present at our annual Opportunity X Science Fair.
"Working with Opportunity X was an amazing experience. With their guidance, my science fair project (Engineering a Better Way to Learn) was accepted and presented at the Synopsys Science Fair in March 2018. Opportunity X's philosophy inspired me to both continue exploring science and technology and share that with others."
