The Summer 2015 program was a smashing success!
AACF’s STEM*-Integrated Chinese Studies program provided students in 4th through 7th grades with an exciting two-week summer experience in Frederick, MD. This was an innovative program from which they gained an increased interest and understanding of Chinese culture and language. Through an immersive Chinese language STEM-based curriculum with the theme, “Discover the Science of China,” students participated in cultural and scientific activities while simultaneously learning the beginner level Chinese needed for basic communication. Technology was well incorporated into daily learning activities; upper-level students participated in an exciting robotics project. Offered at no charge to students, the program ran full days from June 22 – July 2, with snacks provided. Students also participated in a field trip to enhance their classroom learning, as well as a culminating celebration and program for parents on the last day.
