Taller & Smarter

Event Details

We’ve joined efforts with Dallas Afterschool, a local non profit that aims to improve the quality of afterschool and summer programs in our community that serve low-income youth, to host a monthly literacy workshop.

Before we engage in engaging STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities, Angelica Portillo from Dallas Afterschool will read The Day the Crayons Quit to the kids so we learn about teamwork.

Then we will do two WonderKits:
Marshmallow Tower – Kids will engineer a skyscraper out of spaghetti and masking tape that must successfully balance and hold a marshmallow at the top.
Float you Boat –  Kids will build a connection between surface area and buoyancy by designing “life rafts” out of foil that will hold pennies.

Join us!
