SUMMER CAMP – 5th/6th grade
DC2 (Design. Discover. Collaborate. Create)
June 18-19 (9:00 AM-3:30 PM)
Kent ISD (Kent Innovation H.S.; Lot #3)
DESIGNED FOR BOYS AND GIRLS ENTERING GRADES 5-6 in Fall 2019
COST: $25 per student
Last year, nearly 40 students from across the county attended a wildly exciting and engaging program where students learned – not by sitting back and receiving instruction, but by LEAD-ing and DO-ing. These energized 5th and 6th graders partnered with a local business to be a part of the action, not passive observers. Urban Roots, a Community Garden center aimed to help provide both food and education about healthy, sustainable eating in an urban setting, allowed our students to come down to their garden and help tackle real projects they were facing. Students worked together in teams, and with the oversite of trained teachers, came up with ideas, prototyped them out, and pitched their ideas to Urban Roots leaders. The leaders loved their ideas, and even implemented some! THIS is the power of Design Thinking; allowing students to own their learning, designing and creating with purpose, and working together to solve problems while learning from mistakes. Here are a few things some students had to say about the camp: “It was AWESOME!” …. “I loved it here” …. “This was the most awesome camp ever” and “The prizes were awesome.” Check out this flyer for more information, or this page to sign your child up to attend!
