BADM was one of the first partners that was ready to jump in on this Virtual Learning Experience with us, as we quickly shifted our youth programs this summer. The team not only provided Program Leaders with an orientation on what to expect during our scheduled "Virtual Visit", but they also brought "props", enthusiasm, and energy to the STEAM Design Challenge we launched during our annual Thingamajig® Invention Convention. The 3 Billy Goats Gruff Challenge was a great way to model how to facilitate STEAM Design Challenges with youth and how to look and check for understanding during youth engineering time. Thingamajig® Invention Convention is usually a 1000+ youth event all about innovation, design, and engineering - and the partnership with BADM this year helped to make our virtual transition more innovative & engaging.

 The kids were absolutely enamoured by the [virtual] field trip and getting the opportunity to build bridges with your support and guidance. After you left, a student spent their whole hour lunch finishing their bridge. They came back to the Zoom meeting in the afternoon beyond excited to share what they created and to explain the process! Your Virtual Field Trip was the highlight of the week and school year for so many students and we appreciate you for creating this experience.
