This school year at City Springs, our Child First Authority afterschool program has partnered with the University of Maryland Extension 4-H Youth Development program as well as the Reginald F. Lewis Museum to provide students with an opportunity to maximize their full potential. This partnership will permit students to extend their learning after school through community-focused, hands-on activities in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM).
Within this partnership, our students will be engaged in 7 instructional lessons, twice a week for 2 hours, where they will design and build hands-on STEAM projects. Students are at the forefront of leading the creation of the projects. Through this project based learning opportunity, students will also learn about famous African American Heroes. Likewise, students will participate in monthly trips to the Reginal F. Lewis Museum to explore various African Americans who have contributed to the growth and development of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematical fields. The projects that student create will be displayed at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum for all to view!
