Assist-A-Student: Science, Sports, and Technology
Organized by: Emmitt Johnson
EVENT DATE Nov 07, 2015
52% of fifth-grade students are failing science in Hinds County. For students from high poverty neighborhoods, this number jumps as high as 92%. To address this problem, Assist-A-Student provides supplemental science, technology, and sports education to many students annually in Hinds County by offering Summer Program. When funds allow, these programs are offered for free. Without supplemental science education from out-of-school providers like Assist-A-Student, many Hinds County students would not have a complete grade-level science curriculum.
