IMG_3263Press release from Red Bank Charter School

Red Bank Charter School has announced the availability of a new comprehensive STEM-based curriculum for their Summer Institute over five weeks, from July 6 to August 7. Summer Institute registration is now being accepted for current RBCS students, as well as non-students from Red Bank and surrounding communities.

RBCS Summer Institute fuses concepts of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) into real-world summer-learning activities. Students will explore alternative energy sources in a “Ride Like The Wind” engineering workshop by building a prototype wind turbine. They’ll don life-jackets as “River Rangers” in a week-long tour of our local waterways in student-built canoes. They’ll also develop teamwork skills in a canoeing competition with peers, culminating in a technology-driven storytelling activity using graphics, music and video.

Younger students will seine the Navesink “Down By the Sea” as budding Marine biologists. They’ll also experience “Life on a Farm” and learn about the importance of sustainable organic farming, and how to harvest nutritional snacks.

IMG_3283“As an early adopter of Charter education, Red Bank Charter School has always embodied an innovative instructional model to ensure high academic performance, and development of the whole child,” said RBCS Principal Meredith Pennotti. “Extending learning experiences through the summer months can help to improve academic performance, and create opportunities for students to engage in an enriched and supportive community year round. We are thrilled to expand our program to a wider community.”
