We are proud to announce the opening of our first school-based site in Wright City, MO. This site serves children in grades K-5 each day after school. The site opened on the first day of school for the district, August 22, 2022. We have 50 kids registered to participate with an average daily attendance of 47. Since the kids served here are younger, our STEM programming has started with more basic STEM concepts and a lot of hands on activities. The kids are really enjoying the opportunities to engage in STEM activities, especially since they do not have a dedicated STEM class or session during the school day. Starting a new site is a huge endeavor and has required significant financial investment. Grant, foundation, and community donors have been a huge part of this success and we so appreciate the investment in our kids, mission, and STEM education.
