To celebrate Earth Day, there are a lot of fun and environmentally-friendly #STEM activities to try out with the kids! A homemade birdhouse is an activity that involves #handsonlearning and teaches kids to care for the environment. Take it to an Earth-friendly level by recycling cardboard boxes for the project.

Kids at work - making the best out of the unexpected staycation! Enjoying the beautiful spring days, they planned and built their own ‘Nature Fort’ in the backyard - with stone marked walkway, bird house, brick floors, fence, vegetable garden, basic furniture repurposing old stumps, fairy house display and a workshop table for ‘mixing the spices and preparing for the opening party’. Love their teamwork, creativity and enthusiasm!

Ideas for their opening party or their next projects?

Our young wizards finished their camp in Alexandria with a big bang! Not only they shined presenting to the audience of adults their innovative ideas to improve the world around them, but they also have been busy with hands-on explorations like which soda has the most fizz, how to land a chopper consistently in the same spot and how to design a satellite that would hover in the wind tunnel. That took lots of patience and teamwork, and our #CompassionateInnovators did not give up and kept trying and supporting each other.

We couldn't have been more proud and hopeful of our future innovative leaders!

We are proud of our young Compassionate Innovators who have put up a show and unveiled their empathy-driven innovations on the last day of the #InnovationLab camp in Falls Church. It's inspiring to see that we have lots of talent and our future is bright - with these young leaders who are determined to never give up and persevere through any challenges!

The last couple of days of the Innovation Lab at Alexandria we've been exploring Empathy - what it is, why it is important to drive innovation, what it means to us and shared stories from our lives. Our innovators worked hard on their ideas keeping in mind their empathy-driven origin.

We had an amazing 'show and tell' and are impressed by the talent of our youth. Our campers were so proud sharing their personal stories and items and why they are important to them.

Exploring various engineering ideas, we also learned about balancing and control by building towers using index cards and spaghetti and marshmallows. While it seemed easy at the first sight, it was pretty challenging in real life. Most of us failed many times before we got them to work, and we felt frustrated. We reflected as a group on our experience and watched a video about some of the most successful people - they were shocked to learn what those had to go through in order to succeed. We concluded that mistakes and failure is a part of learning and of our journey to success!

As usual, at the end of the day we practiced mindfullness. This time using a mindful eating exercise. While the kids had lots of fun doing it, they reflected that it made them feel calmer. We hope they'll keep practicing it at home and at school!

We had a great start of our new #InnovationLab camp this week in Alexandria. Our young innovators challenged themselves and stretched their thinking as they built their roller coasters and brainstormed empathy-driven ideas for their team projects.

We learned the concept of Identity and Self-Discovery and shared our stories and experiences about themselves and how they learn best.

Along the way, our students not only discovered in a hands-on way Gravity, Momentum, Balance and Design Principles, but practiced how to stay chill and persevere in the face of the failure, work together as a team and share ideas - to win together!

We end our days practicing mindfulness and so far explored yoga. It's not easy at the beginning but our wizards were able to find fun in it and ultimately calm down.

What problems our Compassionate Innovators will decide to solve this week and how? Stay tuned for the updates!

#STEM #SEL #21stCenturySkills

08/14/2019

We had a busy day 2 at the #InnovationLab camp today! Children were working on improving the design of their self-controller coasters. They added different levels of difficulty and learned the concept of stability and balance. We built the electric train tracks but couldn't quite get them to work yet.

We practiced focus and patience building high rises using index cards, and learned about the importance of team work, communication and empathy. It was rewarding seeing them come up with ideas and work together. Students ended the day trying mindful eating exercise with a fruit and shared their experiences.

We look forward to tomorrow!

It was amazing seeing our young scientists-magicians confidently shine at their Science Magic show while demonstrating their 'magic' tricks in front of the audience of peers and adults. They not only shared the amusement with the science behind their 'tricks', but they also reflected on what they learned about themselves during the week.

As children learned important Social and Emotional skills like self-discovery, confidence, self-regulation, perseverance, communication and collaboration, they felt more effective and confident about the hands-on projects they worked on, which this week happened to be Science. And that, in turn, helped develop their positive attitude towards that topic.

Children said:

"I like planets."
"I like magic because I can teach my parents magic."
"Science is the right thing for me."
"I learned that #Science is way cooler than it looks."
"Sometimes its OK to #fail, but we should always try again."

As we are wrapping up this summer's Science Magic camp, we feel proud of our young generation of #CompassionateInnovators and are hopeful looking into the future.

Looking forward to our #InnovationLab camp and unlocking genius in every child we work with during this summer!
