Brooklin School students in the Boat Building Class taught by Eric Blake.

MMA does a program for middle and high school students at schools and camps that is a one-day intro to MMA and the career opportunities in the maritime field.  It involves a tour of campus, an opportunity to try out our bridge simulator, a science or engineering lesson with one of our faculty and a harbor tour on one of our boats, as well as lunch. The goal is to get students in the 7/8th grade interested in STEM as research shows that an exciting math or science experience in middle school is the #1 predictor of a STEM career.

Everyone from Head Start through 4th grade attended the Frogtown Puppeteers show and we also filled out the audience with other local schools and community members. In the afternoon, the second graders were invited to the REACH stage to each make their own puppet during an hour-long hands-on workshop with all three puppeteers! The show and workshop, was paid for through donations to the REACH Performing Arts Center at this year's annual gala in August.

Opera House Arts, DISES, and Explorations Learning Center sponsored another contra dance residency for third and fourth graders this week.  Chrissy Fowler, dance caller and educator led Class Acts: Contradance & Physical Education, engaging students in the traditions of New England Contradance.
