Early Learning Coalition Brings Science Enrichment to Altgeld-Riverdale Kids

Each month, first, second, and third graders from Aldridge Elementary in the Altgeld-Riverdale community board a bus bound for Kids Science Labs in the South Loop for an hour of discovery and fun. This science enrichment program is just one component of our Altgeld-Riverdale Early Learning Initiative—an effort to create a comprehensive community-based system to support young children in Altgeld-Riverdale.

“Our partnership with Kids Science Labs and Chicago-based Youth Guidance gives kids an opportunity for hands-on learning and experimenting,” said Susannah Levine, Director of BPI’s Education and Early Learning program. “We hope this will nurture a lifelong love for science and creativity.”

This partnership is in its third year and will expand to include a second school in January.  We are grateful for the Albert Pick, Jr. Fund’s generous support of this program.
