STEAM OF SPORTS EDUCATION focuses on skill building in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics with added enrichment activities. The STEAM of Sports educational curriculum combines physical activity with STEAM concepts to foster innovation in learning by sparking interest in the mechanisms behind sport and physical fitness. The sport component of this method is supported by weekly onsite sessions by instructors from the YMCA at the AGS site and EQT REC Center at Waynesburg Central.
ENVIONMENTAL EDUCATION teaches the students about sustainable practices in carbon emissions, gardening, culinary, and more through a collaboration with Penn State Fayette and 4H. Students engage in project based learning opportunities that extend their school day curriculum to reduce their carbon footprints, learn about weather and climate, and different agricultural practices like aquaponics, hydroponics, aeroponics, and traditonal gardening.
POSITIVE ACTION is an evidence based systematic educational program that promotes an intrinsic interest in learning and encourages cooperation among students. It works by teaching and reinforcing the intuitive philosophy that you feel good about yourself when you do positive actions. Weekly Positive Action lessons are a key component of the afterschool program.
