"I was given the chance to volunteer at the Rockville Nursing Home...I was able to engage in one-on-one conversations with the seniors and gain insight as to what their life is like. It was interesting to see how a few high schoolers could enlighten the mood of the residents simply by spending a few hours with them. Being able to help elders express their artistic ability was truly a privilege..." Ms. Riya S.
“The girls in my STEM club thought we should send a thank-you note! Because of the school closures we've been doing meetings remotely but even still the girls have been working hard on their career research projects. They pick a field related to STEM and do some research and share their findings with the club and Georgia (she's 11!) chose engineering. She was doing research last week and ended up on the Arts-n-STEM 4 Hearts career guidance page https://www.arts-n-stem4hearts.org/stem-career-guidance and thought you would like to know that she was able to get TONS of excellent info from the sites there like science buddies, and showed your page to our whole club so everyone could use it, so thank you!!” Ms. Stacey Martin
