What's Included

Youth will complete a series of “challenges” that incorporates the design process. Each week participants will have multiple options to choose from. Encouraged to work in teams, they will select a challenge that ranges from engineering & science based to creative and artistic based. Regardless of their selection they will be designing, producing and testing their creations based on the specific criteria given in the challenge. The overall goal is to develop an understanding of the problem-solving process called design and the social dynamics of cooperative work. New "challenges" every season.

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.
