Spring 2012 Field Trip

On April 5th, students from both DelSesto and Nathanael Greene came to Brown to demo their creative projects to each other, the Learning Exchange staff, and other faculty and students in the Brown community.

The students were incredibly proud of their projects and excited to present.  The computer programming students explained the intricacies of their games while the music mixers covered the details on how they brought together different types of songs to produce cool mashups.  One 6th-grade student, finishing her second session with LE, even gave a short speech on what the program has meant for her interest in mathematics.

Here are some pictures from the event:

A 6th-grader excitedly shows off her certificate of achievement, signifying the end of a successful semester.

A 6th-grade student shows off his final project: a Scratch rendition of the popular mobile application, "Temple Run", as other students watch.

Many students left Brown with an excitement for college and a desire to learn more about how they can build on the activities they explored through LE this past session. We look forward to working with middle and high-school teachers in the coming months to brainstorm how their students may continue to explore creative ways to learn!

Spring 2012 Launch and Growth!

We recently began our Spring teaching program.  We have partnered with the Providence After School Alliance (PASA) at DelSesto Middle School to become an official after-school provider.  It has been very fun developing relationships with staff and students at DelSesto – many of whom were in the program during the Fall and are excited to be back.

We also recently partnered with Nathanael Greene Middle School and have recruited more staff to lead our teaching efforts there.  With excellent support from the school, we have been fortunate to have an exciting start and can’t wait to see what comes next.

Stay tuned for updates!
