viNGN to Bring ‘STEAM Forward for SUCCESS’ to AgriFest 2020
Virgin Islands Next Generation Network (viNGN) The Virgin Islands Next Generation Network (viNGN) invites the community to “STEAM Forward for SUCCESS” at the 49th Annual AgriFest 2020 on Feb. 15-17 at Estate Lower Love, St. Croix. Visitors to the viNGN booth will enjoy coding fun, participate in learning challenges, and discover the world of fiber optics and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM). STEAM Forward for SUCCESS is a program being developed by viNGN to pair USVI public school educators with the tools they need to introduce STEAM concepts to students. The program’s purpose is to provide educators with tools to create makerspaces in public schools. Makerspaces give students hands-on, creative ways to design, collaborate, learn and invent. They also help children develop interpersonal, organization and presentation skills as they engineer projects that could help solve the problems of today and tomorrow. Public school educators who are interested in being considered for the first STEAM Forward for SUCCESS cohort should visit www.vingn.com/community to download the introductory package. For more information, contact Anita Davis at 715-8581 ext. 2244 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
