Students build rockets, cameras and bridges (oh my) at STEAM Week

Last week, students from Thomas Edison, Kuumba, Prestige and McCullough charter schools attended STEAM Week at the Charter School of Wilmington.

Students from the schools are involved with Leading Youth Through Empowerment, a local nonprofit program that aims to increase access to top performing high schools for students from low-income backgrounds. The organization was founded by Ankur Arya, 25, a teacher at Thomas Edison Charter.

Students involved with the program spent four days at the Charter School of Wilmington, breaking off into four subject rotations each day. Students attended workshops in Science (working with DNA), Technology (microscopes and nanotechnology), Engineering (building rockets and bridges) and Arts (creating cameras).

“They had a wonderful time. They were excited to go every single day,” Arya said of the students. “The activities got them up, got them moving and got them exposure to materials they don’t normally see in school.”
