“Recycle Your Way to STEAM has been a great opportunity for our children, parents and staff to play and learn together while having a blast!”

"Recycle Your Way to STEAM was an amazing program for our teachers. Teachers turned everyday materials into extraordinary teaching tools for the children to learn science, vocabulary, social skills and problem solving skills. The following week the teachers used the ideas from the program in their lesson plan to create more STEAM projects. The children loved creating their own projects and the teachers were amazed by all the children’s unique ideas. Teachers truly enjoyed participating in the program since it was so interactive and teambuilding. We are so happy that we participated in this program and can’t wait to do it again.

Thank you for bringing this phenomenal experience to our region; it has meaningfully impacted administrator perspective, educator strategies, as well as child experiences and outcomes in Region IV."
