Kids Explore and Discover with ‘SC

What is KEDS?

Kids Explore and Discover with ‘SC (KEDS) is Alpha Phi Omega’s bi-annual philanthropy event in which students from various schools and organizations from all over the Los Angeles area are invited to come together for a fun day of learning. We have prepared a series of hands-on workshops throughout the morning along with a FREE visit to the California Science Center and Endeavour exhibit in the afternoon. Our hope is that this variety of workshops will engage the students, kindling a passion for learning, fostering creativity and encouraging curiosity. Last semester, we were able to host 60 students of all ages. After the event, we received great feedback, and found that students enjoyed getting to spend a day on the USC campus with current USC students and would love the opportunity to do it again. The purpose of KEDS is to give students from underprivileged backgrounds and various cultural backgrounds the opportunity to explore a variety of subjects through engaging workshops to help foster their drive for education. We hope that by incorporating fun into our workshops, we can instill a curiosity and love for learning in the kids from a young age. We hope that this early introduction to the value of education at a college campus will also inspire them to continue fueling their passion for learning and pursue higher education. Past workshops have included a recycling relay to teach the students how to properly sort trash and recyclables, rocket launching experiments to teach aerodynamics, and art projects.

The Day Will Include:

• Fun and educational workshops about science, art, and more!
• A FREE trip to the California Science Center!
• FREE lunch!
