Due to the efforts of our Green Team members, we were awarded a new STEAM Lab through the Boston Celtics and National Grid “Energy Assist Award! Three of the Green Team members, Sarah McVey, Bailey Baptista and Caroline Belanger created a video that won this amazing award! With this award we won a newly designed STEAM lab that was created and put together by the Boston Celtics, National Grid and City Year. This happened over the course of FOUR weeks!! The STEAM lab received 25 Chromebooks, 13 Samsung tables, a new Chromecast television, an outdoor greenhouse, new greenhouse grow- lights, new lab tables & chairs, lego mindstorm robotics, K’Nex and Makey-Makey invention kits.
Today was the BIG unveiling with the Boston Celtics and National Grid! We had a special Green Team learning time in the new lab with Celtics players Leone Powe and Kelly Olynyk. We also had a surprise visit from the team mascot, Lucky! From National Grid, Terrence Sobolewski was with us as well! The entire school participated in an amazing assembly with the Celtics and National Grid. They heard powerful messages about perseverance, believing in your self, working hard, collaboration and teamwork. It was truly an amazing experience for all!
Here are few pictures for now….however, a video recap will be posted in the next few days for you to view. We had several media outlets here today…so look out for us in the news and on social media with this award!
