Throwback Thursday . . . to the Summer of 2013

How to bring the bridge project into the classrooms was their summer challenge/NYSTA

How to bring the bridge project into the classrooms was their summer challenge/NYSTA

I remember when the five-year plan was unveiled at a Tarrytown school board meeting October 2013. One of the art teachers included an intergenerational component in her class whereby senior citizens met with students to draw their impressions of the bridge.

Middle school students fascinated by the river activity outside their windows were in for a pleasant surprise — the New NY Bridge was coming to their classrooms.

During the past three years the project’s educational outreach program visited grade schools, colleges, universities, businesses, senior groups, professional and community group, and I’m sure there are more. One high school was inspired to begin an Engineering Club, and many schools incorporated the project into their STEM, STEAM and P-TECH curricula.

Blog posts about some of the education outreach endeavors are here. You may also find the Search box in the right column helpful (i.e., STEM, STEAM, P-TECH, engineering, the word “school,” falcons).

I’d like to know what you think.
