Saturday Science Academy II (SSA II) exposes Pre-K through 12th-grade students to fun and engaging science material in an effort to motivate them to move into the healthcare field after graduating high school. The program deepens and sustains student interest in science and health education and establishes a pathway through college and into health professions. Students are introduced to various concepts in human anatomy and physiology, math, biomedical engineering, physical science, global health, plant life, marine biology, earth science, space science, etc., each in a 7-week academically rich learning intense program phase including a field trip related to the session topics. Each phase is designed to introduce students to broad and in-depth subject area content, thereby increasing their knowledge. Within this programmatic framework, complimentary program activities are employed to maximize student learning outcomes and engage parents/caregivers.
SSA II places a heavy emphasis on work ethics that are applicable to school and are important for joining the workforce, their future educational goals, the healthcare industry, and working with the community.
