BCSD Announces New "Summer Adventure" Program
The Baldwin County School District’s Summer Adventure program is an innovative STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) summer curriculum that is designed to keep our students engaged and having a blast even while school is out for summer. The overarching goal of the Summer Adventure program is to provide positive extended activities through the summer with continued intellectual and social development for our students.
The Summer Adventure program’s intention is to encourage students to try new experiences and be able to demonstrate a new skill or knowledge gained upon completion. Summer Adventure aims to have students share new knowledge with teachers, peers, and family and use summer experiences as an opportunity to strengthen those core relationships.
The program will be providing our students numerous STEAM opportunities to enjoy their summer learning through curriculum like “Art Treasury” where students will learn about famous artists and create their artwork using that artist’s techniques, each week. Other examples include our “Steamin’ Your Way Into a Healthy Life,” where students will spend their day being active and jamming out to their favorite music, making and eating healthy snacks.
“The Summer Adventure curriculum is designed to provide our summer students with activities that keep their attention and keep them engaged,” said Carol Goings, K-5 Instructional Specialist for the Baldwin County School District. “Throughout the entire program, they’ll be receiving a very high-quality education based in the STEAM fields, but we are doing so in a way that allows us them to have a lot of fun and instills that desire in them to constantly keep coming back. It’s going to be the absolute best way for our students to spend their summer learning.”
