Description of Agency/Activities:

The Milwaukee Academy of Science is an independent charter school, opened in August 2000. The school serves students from K4 through twelfth grade. Our rich and challenging curriculum emphasizes science and the partnerships we have in the community enable us to offer our students unique science opportunities. The school is governed by the Milwaukee Science Education Consortium, a 501c(3) organization. The Consortium includes representatives from the Medical College of Wisconsin, Marquette University, Cardinal Stritch University, Alverno College, the Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC), the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) and Mount Mary College. In July 2008, the Consortium began a new five-year charter agreement with the City of Milwaukee.

Student Role at Agency:

Classroom Assistant: Students will work closely with teachers, providing support in the classroom. Service learners will help with classroom and do in-class tutoring to M.A.S. students.

Project Empower Nova Assistant: Service Learners will work afterschool in the M.A.S. high school with the Project Empower Nova (PEN) Program. PEN uses documentary film to engage high school students in social justice issues. Service learners will assist with the PEN students with their Youth Dinner and Dialogue community service project.
