Learning Academy To Open

Learning Academy To Open

On Saturday, February 1, from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m., the Women and Children Family Enterprise, Inc., a non-profit organization founded and operated by women, will be launching a special program for children at the Science and Math Learning Academy, located at 488 Beach 66 Street.

The goal of the project is to provide an enrichment of science and math activities in a nurturing and stimulating learning environment.

"This will cultivate a love, passion, and life-long interest in science and math so the children will excel in these subjects during their high school and college years," said Julia Blair, a spokesperson for the facility.

"Our goal is to help them to become the next generation of engineers, architects, scientists and computer programmers."

Some of the other activities that the children will be involved with include computer assisted research and instruction in the game of chess.

Parents and guardians of children in grades kindergarten through fourth grade can bring their children to P.S. 42 during the opening for registration and parent orientation.
