On Thursday November 30th the RES community gathered with volunteers from the Society of Women Engineers, ECHO Science Museum, Radiate Art Studio, and CHMS and JES educators to celebrate making, creating, building and learning. Students and their families had an opportunity to try a range of hands on activities that encouraged them to Make, Create and Share! The evening was a true celebration of collaborative learning and FUN.
Here is a video that gives you a small peak into the great events of the evening.
This event could not happen without the help of volunteers inside and outside of our school community. I am so grateful to be surrounded by people that believe in student hands on learning and are willing to give time to create this type of experience.
