Parkwood Elementary hosted the program, which focused on math and engineering education. It was sponsored with a $ 15,000 grant from the Duke Energy Foundation. Throughout the week, engineers from Jacobi, Toombs & Lanz, and Maker 13 lead students in hands-on activities to spark interest in STEM.

The camp also offered the students an hour of math “tutoring”.

The program was attended by students from Parkwood Elementary and Bridgepoint Elementary.

“The program was aimed at students who had problems in math … or maybe we thought they had fallen behind in math during the pandemic,” said the teacher at 3rd.

It concluded on Friday with a presentation of student projects.

While GCCS became the first school district to greet students in person last July, some still chose to study online.

3rd grade student Jaxon Hess, who studied virtually in the fall semester, told WAVE 3 that he felt better prepared after the math and engineering camp.

“Now that I am in person and get help, I feel like I go into the other [3rd] I’ll know more about it, ”he said.

GCCS previously announced its plan to continue serving students with learning disabilities. District leaders have allocated more than $ 2 million in federal aid to hire a dozen teaching coaches this fall to fill student learning gaps.
