School Was Never Out in 2020

Updated: Feb 10

Our virtual after-school programs continued until the end of June, and our virtual summer academy began the week of July 4th for 50 students. Our virtual summer academy, which was held under the auspices of Boston After School and Beyond, featured three hours of daily programming that included project-based learning with technology, computer design, makerspace activities and electronic basketball. In order to support the student’s learning, a makerspace kit was delivered to each student’s home with the materials needed for the summer program.

Sparked by the mayor of Boston declaring racism a public health issue, students discussed, researched, analyzed, and proposed solutions and action projects to make their schools and communities places where they felt safe. Our youth created projects and offered solutions for improvements in three general areas: police relations, teacher-student relations, and community programs. Our students gave voice to their ideas through computer design and the creation of videos using their maker kits. Our successful virtual summer academy provided structure, connections, and continuity which combined social-emotional growth and critical thinking with having fun.
