The last day of summer camp 2019

Here are hundreds of photos taken over one day while visiting various Carver summer programs. See the joy, discoveries, friendships, and fun experienced at Columbus Magnet School, the Carver Community Center, at the Nathan Hale Middle School talent show and awards, and at West Rocks Middle School where the summer transition students are watching "Bridge to Terebithia" following a pizza party (a movie based upon the novel read by the kids this summer).

Stepping Stones teaches Carver summer students how to build a Rube Goldberg machine

Stepping Stones Museum for Children staff visited West Rocks Middle School to teach rising 6th graders how to build a Rube Goldberg machine. 

This is a machine intentionally designed to perform a simple task in an indirect and overcomplicated fashion. Often, these machines consist of a series of simple devices that are linked together to produce a domino effect, in which each device triggers the next one, and the original goal is achieved only after many steps.

Beardsley Zoo visits Carver's rising sixth graders in our summer transition program

Carver summer transition programs are designed to help incoming 6th and 9th grade student’s transition into Norwalk’s four middle and two high schools. Programming includes individualized instruction, parental involvement, small group learning experiences, diverse enrichment activities, free transportation, and full-day activities benefiting working families. Students learn the basics of navigating their respective new schools.

Today, Beardsley Zoo visited our students who are transitioning into West Rocks Middle School. They brought some great animals like a frog, giant cockroach, ringed doved, a python and a bunny.
