If so, then come to the all-day info session planned for Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center (4400 W. 18th St., 77092) to learn more about the Sally Ride Science Academy.

This innovative program provides teachers with training and resources to increase student enthusiasm about science and its related career fields. It was developed for grades 3, 4, and 5, and is based on research that shows introducing young people to diverse examples of science careers and scientists can ignite their interest in the subject and make the study of science more meaningful to them.
