R.O.C.K. Afterschool Program Participants Compete in 31st Annual Tech Challenge
A student ‘engineering’ team of 4th and 5th graders from the Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services’ Baldwin R.O.C.K. Afterschool Program competed in the 31st Annual Tech Challenge on April 28. The team was supported by a three-year grant partnership with the Tech Museum of Innovation, which aims to build model engineering programs and a network of engineering education leaders to support the teaching of STEAM. Team R.O.C.K. tested their device at the “Drop and Dash” Challenge alongside 600 teams from the Bay Area. At the event, Team R.O.C.K. presented their journal and device to a team of judges in front of a full exhibition hall as they were cheered on by family, R.O.C.K staff, and their classroom teachers.
