The program continues to offer the great hands-on activities and curriculum developed by NASA and specifically targeting students from backgrounds not well represented in the sciences. As in the greater Jamaica area, our participants are primarily minorities. The unique feature of SEMAA is its inspiring and engaging activities and the involvement of the parents. The Parent Cafe, with our award-winning coordinator Unadae Deepan, hosted Congressman Meeks, Assemblyman Scarborough, the Day Care Council, the Early College Academy, the GRADS Foundation mentor group, Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning, among others.
