Outdoor Learning Environment Fundraiser – June 21st!
What IS The Outdoor Learning Environment, Anyway?
When we first moved into Homestead Campus 6 years ago, we began developing a vision for what the Outdoor Learning Environment could become! Over the last 6 years it has gone from a grassy field full of pricker bushes to a place where students thrive and they, as well as the greater community, get a chance to sharpen their saws! Please see below for the artist’s original rendering of the vision for the space. While the 2nd slide says “future” the future is HERE! And we need your help to make this vision a reality! Please plan on attending the fundraiser on June 21st!

Check Out Camp Infinity!
Camp Infinity is a four-day summer technology camp for girls entering 5th to 8th grade that introduces technology as fun and fulfilling and inspires the pursuit of technology education. MCWT Foundation created it to address the primary reasons girls lose interest in technology: confidence, social relevance, and social (peer) acceptance. The camp:
- ● Builds confidence and capability with hands-on technology activities such as robotics and web design
- ● Demonstrates that technology is fun through the execution of engaging projects with other girls, with high school/collegiate girls as counselors
- ● Reinforces social relevance by featuring visitors from the local technology community that explain how their work is important to society at large
