STEM Center Projects: Including Robot Rebuildling, LEGO sorting, and more!

The USRA STEMaction Center had a buffet of small volunteer projects that were complete on the MLK day of Service. Projects included: building robots for our training set, basic carpentry to add shelves/door to existing structures, organizing supplies, and putting up decor.
It was a great opportunity for family and friends.


Winter Growth

MLK Day to Serve

Various ideas for service included sharing stories about the unique culture diversity of both volunteers and clients reflecting the spirit of MLK and an art project helping our clients make cards of encouragement echoing MLK ideas and values with the idea of sending the cards to a Head start school for words of encouragement to our youth and to be displayed. Other suggestions for volunteers that mirrored MLK’s dream of a world that honors all people of the world were encouraged.
