Clubhouse Members Learn and Experiment

Proven youth development strategy has been the solution for children and teens in need. The I Will Project's successful afterschool and summer enrichment programs on aquaponics (IFIZ) began locally at one clubhouse, and was expanded with substantial 2021 grant funding from NASA to 10 sites a year later! Over 150 members in four southern Colorado counties experienced the 6-week STEM program on growing plants and fish together, interacted with a scientist from Kennedy Space Center, and brainstormed about their future careers. Each received an individual tabletop grow system mini-tank to take home. In 2022, this outreach continues in Pueblo with other funding to create a fun, positive learning environment for 4th-12th grade members.
