Fun and Learning in Afterschool

We’ve been learning a lot and having a great time in YOUR Advancing Afterschool. From creating vision boards to science experiments, scholars have been participating in a variety of S.T.R.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art and Math) activities that help enrich their after school experience. Here’s a picture from a recent activity where our 2nd grade students at West Education Campus engaged in a fun art enrichment, recreating the owl from the book ” The Night Gardener” by The Fan Brothers, using clay and water paint.
