Background and Students

Science outreach with beakers and brain


Mission Grammar is a small urban Catholic school located on Tremont St. in Boston. The students are 7th graders, a mix of males and females, and they are drawn from the larger community of Boston not just from the local area. They are predominantly minority students. They have no science facilities and greatly appreciate our contributions to their science curriculum.


The students are typical 7th graders. One minute you are wondering why they are so distracted and the next minute they ask the most insightful question. Whatever they say or do, they love it when we come to their school.
