STEM after school program this Winter!

TEKintellect Inc. Introducing LEGO® Robotics. Participants learn to build mechanized LEGO® models. In every session, the students receive a STEM lesson introducing them to the principles of science underlying the models they are engaged in building. For students K-2nd grades our models include Race car, Hummer, Conveyor belt, Laundry drum, Windmill and many others. Students 3rd-5th grades will build more sophisticated models with infra red remote controls such as Railroad bridge, Street Sweeper, Helicopter, Airplane, Power plant and others. The students are exposed to robotics and its wonders using their engineering abilities, their imagination and creativity. This program is ideal for children who are amazed by the wonders of Robotics, enjoy creating things, love getting answers for their logical questions and experience hands on learning utilizing multi-sensory experimentation.

Food Drive begins next week!

This weekend we reflect on what we are thankful for and enjoy our time with family, plentiful food and good cheer. Let’s also take a moment to think of those who are not as fortunate. On Monday, November 27th begins AmPark’s Annual Food Drive in support of our local community. 

From November 27 – December 8 you can help support POTS – a local food pantry. This year alone, there are 25,000 people – including 8,000 children – who will turn to POTS for help. With less than 20% of support provided by government sources, it will be impossible to meet their needs without the generous help of many. Everyone has something to give –all contributions are valued and appreciated. Continue reading Food Drive begins next week!
