Summer of Learning

By August 25, 2020August 28th, 2020No Comments

Our physical space may have been off-limits this summer due to shutdowns caused by the coronavirus, but that didn’t stop us from bringing engaging, maker-centered learning directly to kids and teachers in homes and classrooms throughout our region and beyond.

Here’s what we did this summer:

  • We partnered with Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) to provide virtual summer school to over 3,500 students at Title I schools, successfully delivering real-time, interactive instruction that emphasized off-screen building and creative learning.
  • We served an additional 500+ children in week-long summer camp sessions, and provided scholarships for 135 students from low-income families — with an emphasis on reaching those from racial and ethnic backgrounds typically underrepresented in STEM.
  • We provided professional development training for 250+ classroom teachers, giving them the skills and confidence to bring maker learning into their virtual classrooms.
