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.

My second grade team and I really enjoyed the virtual field trips with Aubree and Ruben. They were great and super engaging! Our kids literally couldn't stop sharing and building! During this online era, it is especially meaningful to have new faces and new challenges that were expertly prepared and inclusive! Thanks for everything.
