Science Research Institute
in Berks Broadens Research-Based
Learning for Kids
by Adelle Schade

(Berks County, PA) -

"Research is formalized curiosity. It is
poking and prying with a purpose."
- Zora Neale Hurston
Do you remember what it was like to be a kid? Nothing seemed
impossible and being told "no" or "you can't" as an answer simply
wasn't acceptable. The innocent and colorful imagination of a child
is something many unfortunately lose as they get older. Yet, what if
that same imagination and persistence as a child could be applied
towards making a change and improving the world?
Creativity flows from curiosity and when questions are
unanswered, those who seek answers and solutions act. Nelson
Mandela once said, "It always seems impossible until it's done."
What once started as an idea and vision can one day change the
world. Thanks to researchers and their dedication to finding the
truth and solving problems, some of today's greatest technological
advancements across all industries have been created.
Now, students in grades 5-12 have access to state-of-the-art
equipment and the ability to use their creativity and curiosity to
learn advanced industry-level techniques thanks to the Science
Research Institute (SRI).

SRI Introduces Students to a Whole New World
Introduced back in 2015 at Conrad Weiser High School was the
first fully functioning high school histology laboratory in the United
States. Who knew that in a short five years, the program enrollment
would increase 817% and quickly outgrow its location at the Conrad
Weiser facility. Thanks to a partnership with Albright College, SRI
has been able to continue experiencing amazing growth, providing
students with a one-of-a-kind learning experience.

In May 2020, the Science Research Institute was prestigiously
named one of the top four STEM programs in the United States
by District Administration Journal. SRI, since its inception, has had
nine students produce innovations that are currently under review
for patents. The SRI program will continue to innovate and lead the
United States in premier STEM programming for Berks County
students and beyond.
Through this first of its kind program, students have the ability
to be mentored by current Master/Ph.D. level scientists and industry
experts, as well as attend seminars on cutting-edge topics such as:
* Entrepreneurism
* Biomedical Science
* 3D Bio-Printing
* Microscopy
* Histology
* Materials Science
* Virtual and Augmented Reality
* Music Industry Studios
* Fashion and Design
* And MUCH MORE!
Families in Berks County can access this program at Albright
College during a dedicated summer program or also through afterschool programming. Not only does this provide students the perfect
atmosphere to learn and grow as an individual, but it also helps
them prepare for college and graduate-level research. In addition
to the skills-based and authentic learning experiences provided by
SRI, students will also improve their literacy, communication, and
entrepreneurial thinking skills.
