Maarten De Jeu: Helping Students Learn Science

Science is a critical subject that students in America really need. The Museum Of Science and
Industry hosted an event every summer that gifs students the opportunity to learn how things work.

Farrell Fellows Internship is what this program is called, and it does a good job of offering students to learn beyond what they are taught in school. Maarten De Jeu, who is the
