Collaboration: Howard County, MD. Bridges 21st Century Community Learning Grant
MOTIVATION EDUCATION™ is enjoying working with this after school program for Title I schools since 2014. The work started first as a volunteer opportunity generated by ECRCME and has now turned into a multi-year collaboration with new curriculum, teacher workshops and site visits helping to build a new STEM program component for all the elementary and middle schools involved. The first year of curriculum development involved creating an “Out of the Box” series of 26 boxed resources supporting STEM enrichment. Year 2 involved creating animated characters to improve the introduction to the boxed resources as well as writing a middle school curriculum set of documents to bolster the middle school programming. This year, we are working to create a new exciting K-8 coursework which integrates Socio-Emotional Competencies, Next Generation of Science Standards and Service Learning Requirements for the State of Maryland. The full project entails building programming step by step utilizing piloting materials in summer programs and conducting Action Research to validate and secure continuous improvement.
