23 Jun STEM/Gardening camp 2014
Our summer Youth Farm/STEM gardening camp is going strong and just completed third week of camp.
We thank our Board Members Chris Rothenberger, Director of Environmental Heath at Major Tool and Machine, Nicole Oglesby, Director, Diverse Community Partnership IUPUI Division of Continuing Studies and Dareskedar Henry CEO and founder of RebornCode for their support in making our camp successful.
Chris Rothenberger led the construction and completion of our green house funded by Lilly Endowment Capital fund. For pictures click here
Ncole Oglesy was instrumental in connecting us with IUPUI Center for Earth and Environmental science (CEES). Dr. Pamela Martin, director of CEES and her staff teach soil history and environmental science. This program has received the top rating from our campers for its hands on and engaging activity.
Dareskedar Henry contributed greatly to our organizational system by creating and training FHC staff in using the Project Management system. The system allowed us to categorize our summer activities, assign task and track the progress of these tasks.
Youth counselor Jenna Wiegand, who has been volunteering since 6th grade, captures our daily camp activity on the FHC blog site she created. Please visit the blog site for daily update of camp activity by clicking here
