HYPOTHEkids (Hk), a 501c3 organization, is a K-12 STEM education initiative of Harlem Biospace. Harlem Biospace is a co-working lab space for the NYC’s leading biotech startup companies, and is developed in partnership with New York City Economic Development Corporation.
We started HYPOTHEkids to leverage this great resource to help develop and inspire a new generation of scientists, engineers and technology entrepreneurs. Hk develops students’ science and engineering abilities through in-school and afterschool lab hours and summer enrichment programs.
Taking advantage of the resources of Harlem Biospace, we teach students from the perspective of biotech entrepreneurship: from nurturing a love of science, discovery and sparking the “Maker” passion in the early years to providing an incredible foundation in biomedical engineering product design and prototyping for students in their final years of high school.
