Kids On the Land has recently been highlighted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as an example of a successful STEM program for Elementary students.
They created a STEM benchmark program this spring and are putting a deliberate focus on STEM outreach efforts in order to encourage science, technology, engineering, and math education and programs.
KOL has had the privilege of having Bryon Haney, Business Technical Division, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Southwestern Division as a KOL LINK since 2009. “The program is designed to have scholars participate in every activity and the activities support visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles,” said Mr. Haney.
Haney said that the program is a good way to reinforce what scholars are learning in the classroom and build excitement before state testing.
