iPraxis, a local non-profit dedicated to bettering the lives of Philadelphia youth through Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education, joined Cook-Wissahickon School in celebrating the hard work of the school’s students at a science fair. 

The day marked the culmination of iPraxis’ efforts at Cook-Wissahickon School for the year, as students received the opportunity to display their science projects in front of friends, parents and a group of professionals in the STEM fields.

Experts in the STEM fields also served as judges at the event.

“As students learn more about science and the other STEM academic disciplines, they begin to take pride in their work and look forward to these types of events,” said iPraxis president and founder Jeremiah White. “We have the opportunity to encourage their curiosity and critical thinking. Through these efforts, we earn the privilege of watching their confidence grow.”   

Reaching approximately 500 Philadelphia students each year, iPraxis operates in six Philadelphia public schools: Cook-Wissahickon School, Dr. Tanner G. Duckrey Public School, Hardy Williams Elementary, McMichael Morton School, Northwood Academy Charter School and Paul L. Dunbar School. 

iPraxis will join Hardy Williams Elementary in hosting its science fair in January of 2019.
