Primary Sch. student using microscope for 1st time
Our hearts just about burst when we saw the raw excitement on students' faces as they entered the registration space for STEPS 2016 and saw for the first time the laboratory that they would be working in. We heard comments like "is this really where we will be today?", "this is just like the movies" and giggled along with them as they suited up in gloves and labcoats to do activities like "Identify Squirmies in Pond Water," "Making Test Tubes Vanish," and "Solving the Zombie Acopalypse!".
Yes, in morning and afternoon sessions, we hosted 204 students from schools including Half Way Tree Primary, Mona Heights Primary, Swallowfield Primary, St. Richards Primary, Rock River Primary, Allman Town Primary, St Catherine Primary, Immaculate Conception, St. Francis Primary and Infant School, Papine High, Holy Childhood High, Jamaica College, Ardenne High, Jose Marti Technical High, Norman Manley High and Spanish Town High Schools! All thanks to you!
This lab was full to capacity. We will seriously have to think further on how to accommodate all schools that are interested especially as we expand further outside of the corporate area. We view this as a good problem to have!
On this #GivingTuesday, please consider donating to the project once again and telling all your contacts! Please feel free to circulate this report to all your familty, friends, colleagues, everyone!
When we reflect on the joy on their faces and how they just appeared to 'feel bigger' in their "STEPS Ambassador pins" when the workshops were dismissed, we are sure we doing a good thing.
Thank YOU for enabling us to reach these young minds once again!
Workshop - Full to capacity!
