08 Nov MIC Food Gives Back: We Celebrated Lights On Afterschool with the All-Stars!
LIGHTS ON AFTERSCHOOL
Last month, MIC Food joined community leaders, parents, school staff, and the students of After-School All-Stars for a celebration of the Lights On Afterschool program with a first-hand look at the “Spectacular STEM Showcase”.
The showcase was made up of life-impacting, career-inspiring variations of innovative STEM programming. This included interactive STEM stations including drones, robotics, virtual reality, and the coolest interactive STEM Truck! We were so glad to be able to take a close-up look at what South Florida Afterschool All Stars does, why they do it (for the kids of course!) and how they do it!
