We Speak Science partners with insendi to increase access to Science
- New partnership will focus on online programmes aimed at learners from diverse backgrounds.
- Students from disadvantaged backgrounds, refugees and people displaced by war will access learning, developed with scientists and academics trained from Ivy league universities including Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard, Yale, and NASA.
We Speak Science has announced it will partner with insendi, a Study Group company, to provide online programmes aimed at learners from diverse backgrounds. Programmes will include Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics (STEAM).
We Speak Science collaborates with world-class academics and scientists, from Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard, Yale and NASA, to offer programmes to a wide range of students from disadvantaged backgrounds as well as refugees and people displaced by the War in Ukraine.
We Speak Science facilitates a diverse multicultural environment for learners, supported by an ability to educate online, using recorded lectures, live classes and online synchronous workshops.
Dr. Detina Zalli, Co-founder and President of We Speak Science comments:
“We are absolutely delighted to partner with insendi, who have enthusiastically embraced our mission of assisting migrants and students of disadvantaged backgrounds. We Speak Science has supported low-ethnic minority students since 2014, and it has been inspiring to see our students grow and achieve excellence.
Coming from Albania, I have always been inspired by Mother Teresa's work and We Speak Science will continue to provide educational services to all students in greatest need”.
