HAZARD, Ky. – The Challenger Learning Center, a Blueprint Partner of SOAR, is currently working on plans to give kids a chance to have hands-on experience and completing classes from their homes as a way to address the center’s closure due to COVID-19.
The Challenger Learning Center is planning to offer their summer programs virtually including their wildlife classes and electronics and coding. They have already created a Minecraft server to give kids a chance to interact together.
“We can actually prepackage the materials and give them physical hands-on components that they can build along with us,” said Joseph Collins, program coordinator at the Challenger Learning Center, “We can do electronic lessons and coding and even things like math and construction in that virtual world”.
The center will post updates about their programs on their website and Facebook page.
