Summer STEAM Institute
WOOHOO! On, April 18, 2023, we launched the summer planning and collaboration with @EngagingCreativeMinds! So excited to bring arts experiences to Jasper County students thanks to @ArtsGrowSC, @SCArtsComm and @educationSC.
The students of Jasper County will experience arts thru STEAM, this summer, during summer camp.
Engaging Creative Minds (ECM) will provide a Summer STEAM Institute at Ridgeland Elementary and Ridgeland Secondary Academy of Excellence located at 250 Jaguar Trail Ridgeland, SC 29936, funded by Arts Grow SC.
Throughout the year, during summer enrichment and after school, JCSD will participate in this experience. The district was awarded $5 Million in grant funds thru Arts Grow SC.
The dates of summer enrichment are June 6-29, 2023 (Monday – Thursday) from 7:30 AM to 3:00 PM.
This experience will support 100 students in Grade(s) Kindergarten thru 8th, and 10th thru 12th-grade high school students who will be paid as junior counselors.
Look forward to more information to come!
