What's Included

Working in teams, children will complete a series of “challenges” that provide opportunities for them to design, construct and test models using familiar materials & tools. The overall goal is to develop an understanding of the problem-solving process called design and the social dynamics of cooperative work. Participation in these kinds of activities builds a foundation for the later acquisition of concepts in engineering & science.

About This Organizer

The Office of Children, Youth, and Learning (OCYL)  ia a

municipal department established by town ordinance in February 2007.  It is the first of its kind and has served as a model for community based learning and civic engagement for other communities.  Our mission is to help foster a comprehensive learning environment for children in the first two decades of their lives while promoting youth civic engagement.  The OCYL’s goal is for every Cumberland child to become a skilled learner with a creative mind who achieves to his or her fullest potential.  The way we influence student potential is by providing high quality programming during the out-of-school hours.
