YOUTH CR3W OPEN HOUSE

Interested in joining the Adventure Science Center Youth CR3W? Join us on Saturday, Nov. 11, from 9–11 a.m. for an open house! 

See first-hand some of the exciting hands-on activities and projects our current CR3W members have worked on over the past year and enjoy the opportunity to meet some of ASC's incredible staff while learning more about this incredible opportunity! Refreshments will be provided.

More than just another extracurricular, Youth CR3W is a program that prepares Nashville teens for college and the working world. Students are encouraged to apply as high school freshmen, committing to the program for four years. Pronounced "crew", the "3" in CR3W represents three E's: engage, explore, and explain.

Engage

The primary responsibilities of Youth CR3W include interpreting exhibits for guests and facilitating public events.

Explore

Youth CR3W offers an opportunity to hone communication skills in a professional environment through gaining confidence with public speaking and leadership roles, discovering real-world business skills and etiquette, and developing a solid work ethic. The program allows students to explore their own evolving career interests in a way that has a positive community impact.

Explain

Being able to explain science to a wide range of ages is one of the primary skill sets developed throughout the Youth CR3W program. The sheer enthusiasm of Youth CR3W participants helps guests forge better connections with Science Center exhibits and programs.



GOALS

  • Enhance attitude, skills, knowledge and appreciation for STEM class work and careers
