Conducting science research can change students, as they gain important problem-solving skills and appreciation for the knowledge they learn in the classroom. At Opportunity X, we believe that all students should have access to the resources and materials necessary to complete their own research projects, regardless of their socioeconomic background.

To promote interest for science, we partner with local middle schools that have a high percentage of socioeconomically challenged students. We organize and lead weekly research programs at these schools, guiding a group of 15-30 students through the science research process. Our ultimate goal is to be able to help students participate in the annual Opportunity X STEM Research Symposium. 

 

Our pilot program successfully ran at KIPP Heartwood Middle School in the 2017-2018 school year. We mentored several students through the scientific research process, and we had great results. In the 2018-2019 school year, we expanded our programs to 6 schools across states. Since then our program has been expanding to more schools and states.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we made extra efforts to convert our lab-based school program to online format and we have started seven new school programs and expand our organization to three new states.

We are currently running 25 school programs in 14 state branches.

Are you a student/staff who is interested in having us run a program at your school? Please contact us at main.opportunityx@gmail.com.
