SCHA to launch the first new educational project in North America, combining Lego robotics and STARTUP for its K-6 students!
Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy introduces a brand-new startup program for the 2019-20 school year: "STARTUP through STEAM." This innovative program is a joint venture with I-brick LEGO and Israeli Academy for Gifted Youth.
During the school year, the students will learn by building their own Lego models to become engineers, mnarketers, and problem solvers. "STARTUP through STEAM" brings science, technology, engineering, art and math into the next generation by enabling students to put abstract scientific concepts into practice. From having an amazing creative idea to designing a model and understanding its operation, to budgeting and starting a company, this educational program promises to be a unique transformative experience that will spark the students' imagination, equip them with skills in analytical thinking, and have the potential to lead to a productive business career.
