Northwest Ohio ESC (Northwest Region) – Programming Highlights

CLC Logo

Back in September, as part of SSOE’s United Way Campaign, SSOE-Toledo hosted a STEM Kit Build in which employees spent their lunch hour forming an assembly line to put together STEM Kits for the students of the STARS Programs at Northwood and Rossford.  Each kit had 5 challenges: balloon challenge, cup challenge, engineering challenge, surface tension challenge, and an alfalfa challenge.  At the end of January, volunteers from SSOE visited our Rossford and Northwood STARS locations and completed the challenges with the students.

WCESC Post Pictures - February 2020At the end, students took their kits home to share with their families and friends.  SSOE had put together nearly 250 kits, which allows us to distribute the remaining kits to their other STARS locations for the students to enjoy.  SSOE not only partnered with this grantee for their event, but they have also attended their STEAM Day field trip for the last 3 years.  They are so thankful for the continued support of the STARS program!

Wood County ESC (Northwest Region) – Advocacy Letter to Senator Portman

The Community Learning Center of Conneaut, based out of the Wood County ESC, wrote a letter to Senator Portman to advocate for protecting the rainforests, as part of their Service Learning Project.

Students were studying the rainforest while reading Afternoon on the Amazon, Magic Treehouse Book #6.  Students completed various projects, such as a mural, bark painting, and rainforest animal research and drawings.  During their studies, students learned how important the rainforest is to all life on earth.  One student suggested writing a letter to the Senator to suggest ways to help protect the rainforest.

 

Below is the letter students and staff wrote to Senator Portman:

Letter to Senator Portman

And the program received a response back from Senator Portman!

 

The program is very proud of their students for the way they think “big picture” and want to help protect something they have never even experienced.  After they received the letter, students were eager to find ways to help, which included hanging posters around their school encouraging staff and students to recycle paper and save the trees.
