Residencies

Residencies are a partnership between an educational organization and your class over the course of several months. Partners may vary each year depending on teachers' interests and students' needs; themes include STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). The programs take place over a course of 8-10 weeks during a designated period in the school day, once a week. Residencies vary by grade, offering creative hands-on learning opportunities in support of both critical thinking and social emotional growth. All classes in a particular grade participate in the same residency program.
