GeoKids LINKS is a collaboration involving Saint Joseph's University, theWagner Free Institute of Science, and the School District of Philadelphia. This program places graduate and advanced undergraduate Fellows into Philadelphia 1st through 5th grade classrooms as a part of their training in science. Fellows work with the teachers and education experts from the Wagner Free Institute to implement hands-on science learning activities.
The initial funding for GeoKids LINKS came from grants from the National Science Foundation Graduate Teaching Fellows in K-12 and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. In recent years, the program has been able to continue thanks to the contribution of generous supporters.
