Subaru Loves Learning

The Subaru Foundation has helped us deliver over 400 science programs to the Camden Charter School Network’s students, and has made it possible for our outreach programs to reach students all across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and New York. The support of both of these programs helps us continue to engage countless students with a unique learning environment.
