This week, Artesia Public Schools students had the opportunity to participate in fun-filled learning hosted by Inspired By Science. Thanks to funding from the PY Foundation, the three-day science camp offers STEM education and unique hands-on learning experiences for local students in second through fifth grade.

Deena Antiporda, the Executive Director and President of the organization, has created a series of unique science activities for the 150 local participants.

“We’re really excited to be here in Artesia, it is a great expansion for us. This is our second camp with Artesia Public Schools and we are really happy to be with the kids again. They are eager to learn and that makes us even more excited to share our love of STEM with them” expressed Deena. “We love science and sharing it with children, lighting a spark that leads them to further exploration and strengthens their critical thinking skills.”

Inspired by Science is a charitable organization established in 2013 by Deena and Mike Antiporda of Carlsbad, New Mexico. The purpose of the organization is to promote STEM education at the elementary school level in hopes of inspiring students to pursue education and careers in STEM-related fields.
