Join Project Exploration for a relaxing evening of classical music paired with wine, cheese and a chance to win some outstanding gifts.
We invite you to meet our newest board member and accomplished Violinist Garam Kim. Garam has performed as concerto soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia. Born in South Korea, Garam began playing the violin at the age of 8. Her first concerto solo performance was at age 10 under the baton of Dr. Stephen Alltop with the Cheyenne Symphony. At age 16, she entered Northwestern University, where she simultaneously received a Bachelor of Music degree in Violin Performance and a Bachelor of Arts degree in neurobiology with a minor in chemistry. She currently works in the field of neuroscience research, where she studies Alzheimer's disease and Primary Progressive Aphasia.
Project Exploration brings equity and opportunity to traditionally overlooked communities by making science, technology engineering and math (STEM) education accessible through:
- Experiential out-of-school-time programs led by university students and skilled professionals that empower and mentor underrepresented youth, particularly minority youth and girls
- Community-building connections for schools, students and families through our leadership in Chicago STEM Pathways Cooperative, a STEM Learning Ecosystem
Not only will you have the pleasure of enjoying some classical music and have the chance to win some amazing gifts but you will be supporting Project Exploration as we change the face of science.
