Purpose of God students create STEM projects

Published 4:10 pm Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Youth participating in Purpose of God Annex’s summer program created STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) projects. Projects ranged from puppy puppets, cross necklaces, foam monkeys and Popsicle log cabins. Some children learned how to plant flora — shown with Camille Nelson and Riley Barrow — and watch them grow while older students enjoyed painting and playing with wooden cars, helicopters and trains. They also participated in what the Annex refers to as “Spotlight Reading.” The Annex gave each student an opportunity to shine in front of the room while reading to their classmates. The staff also had a discussion on the politics of our present-day candidates running for office.
