Love of Wisdom

The Love of Wisdom project aims to cultivate the intellectual potential of people, youth in particular, in the El Paso-Juarez-Chihuahua region. We are dynamically developing and implementing a philosophy and art based STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) curriculum to aid in the youth’s success in school and to prepare them for a college education, strong vocational careers, and rich life-long learning attitudes. The aim is to offer students a path to success by using their love for exploration of exciting puzzles via science exhibits, by appraising and cultivating their talents/skills.

Love of Learning (LoL) and Love of Wisdom (LoW) Out-of-School Camps

The Science Engineering Mathematics Aerospace Academy (SEMAA) and the Philosophic Systems Institute (PSI) are partnering to present the Love of Learning (LoL) morning Out-of-School Program. Using an engaging and integrative hands-on STREAM (Science, Technology, Reasoning, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics ) curriculum the LoL programs offers youth an integrative approach to learning with complex narratives that allow youth to use their talents and interest to engage in the scientific and philosophic exploration of the nature of space-time. The Love of Wisdom camps are a PSI only camp in the afternoons, where we will engage in deep narrative and logic development while we visit our downtown museums of History, Art, Science, and the Library

This project aims to work with community organizations, local municipalities, and other key partners to create & cultivate a system of sustainable food practices using our best science.

Sun City Cycling Systems

Sustainability is not about just maintaining a way of life, rather is about promoting active personal growth and development of individuals. We at the Philosophic Systems Institute (Psi), a non-profit organization, focus on dynamic systems. This is why we believe that the biological and psychological well-being of the citizens of El Paso are intertwined with the growth and development of the economic, social and natural environment of the city.
