STEM Event Updates
On Friday, May 18th, 2018, COA youth from five different sites met in the Goldin gym to compete with their STEM project display boards with each other and judges from the community. The youth learned about the scientific method and worked on STEM projects of various ideas such as Which bubble gum brand results in the largest bubble? and Which soda results in the highest mentos geyser.
Kohl’s Wild Theater
COA youth has also had the opportunity to engage with another Kohl’s Hometown Partner, the Zoological Society! The Zoological Society has brought Kohl’s Wild Theater to both the Goldin and Riverwest Center, teaching youth about STEM concepts specifically on animals and conservation. The most recent musical was about a space adventure to the 8 different planets!
