STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) is an important part of the curriculum at Evergreen Elementary and The Longbranch Foundation (TLF) recently donated funds for them to equip a STEM recess option for all students. Snap Circuits, Lego Science Gadgets, Engineering Sets, and Robotic Kits are just some of the hands-on items helping to provide engineering challenges, coding opportunities, virtual reality experiences and fun with robotics design.
TLF has also donated funds to provide scholarships to 5th graders for their Environmental Camp at Camp Seymour this spring, and thanks to a grant from the Angel Guild, each student will have a hygiene kit to pack with their camping gear.
Additional funds have been donated to set up a Small Projects Fund for teachers and to provide scholarships for Thursday “After Ours” classes.
Stay tuned for more news! Many thanks go to Carolyn Wiley for agreeing to be part of the Student Program Committee. More ideas are in the works!
