Our 2016 College Tour Program was off the charts this year! Ranger Good Works partnered with Florida Atlantic University – College of Education to give our students from Dillard Elementary an experience they will never forget. Dillard Elementary Students Experienced College life for four days!
Fifth grade students spent four days and three nights at the Florida Atlantic University Boca Raton Campus. The students had an opportunity to learn what it is like to be a college student staying in the dormitories, attending classes on campus and eating in the dining hall. The professors and graduate students at FAU designed a special curriculum for our exceptional Dillard Elementary students.
The amazing Department of Curriculum, Culture and Educational Inquiry created a program just for our students: STEAM for Social Justice: using Inquiry Skills to Create Changes in Your World. The students were broken down into two groups and gave “Shark Tank Presentations” on June 3rd 2016.
Dr. Corey King, Vice President for Student Affairs gave a nice welcome to visitors there to witness the Pitches & Presentations from the students. The students presented their company and their product/service and fielded questions from the panel of sharks. Sharks included Tony Ash, James Engstrom, Ana Escuder, PHD, Whitney Rawls, and Chief Constance Stanley.
As a result of super team work headed by Dr. Traci P. Baxley, numerous FAU Faculty and students, 8 staff from Dillard Elementary headed by Mrs Angela Brown and funding from our Ranger Good Works donors, the event was an outstanding success!!!
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING RGW IN OUR MISSION TO PROVIDE THE BEST EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES POSSIBLE FOR THE DILLARD ELEMENTARY STUDENTS!
