sing about dr augieThe classes have begun!
This week two of Dr. Augie’s after-school programs were off to a great start!

The elementary program sponsored by the Berkshire Environmental Action Team and funded by the Berkshire Taconic Foundation’s “Berkshire Environmental Endowment” focuses on the Water Systems and the environment. The group quickly realized they were water experts by listing everything they could think about water.

tv station 005The high school kids did some brainstorming about what they want their science TV show to be like. This program is part of the 21st Century Learning Centers grant. The core group did a great job convincing our new students how fun an adventure this will be. We are excited to get a tour of the public access station next week. Lynn Shortis of the Pittsfield Public Schools and Tim LaPort, electrical engineer, will be joining me with directing these awesome students as they pilot their own TV science show!
