CreositySpace is happy to be working with the Technology Access Foundation (TAF) and Boze Elementary School Summer S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) camp, a free one-month camp for students entering grades 3–5 made possible by Tacoma Public Schools title one summer program funding.
Boze Elementary was identified for district funding because of its partnership with TAF, a non-profit committed to improving access to STEM for students of color and underrepresented communities for the past 20 years. TAF accomplishes this mission by providing high quality Project Based Learning (PBL) training and implementation rooted in STEM for school teachers, instructors and administrators, which includes a PBL instructional coach, real world experiences, and experts in related fields of study. This will be the third year of partnership between TAF and Boze Elementary.
Program facilitator Shoshanna Cohen chose to incorporate the CreositySpace materials because they “offer a comprehensive STEAM curriculum with creative entrepreneurship and invention connections. They make it easy for the teachers to connect the CCSS and NGSS to the lesson based on the grade level, and they make it easy for the students to connect the curriculum to the real world and have a personal interest in what they are learning.”
The team at the Boze STEAM academy would like to thank Windermere, Roboterra, Cubits, and STEMBox for their donations and for helping them bring these amazing opportunities to their scholars!
