At Bottle Rocket, Rocketeers are encouraged to reach out to our community and contribute by donating time and expertise to help promote STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) and the importance of it. Rocketeer Amanda Chappell has done just that! Amanda’s mom is a teacher here in Dallas at a local elementary school that has been searching for after school opportunities for their top achieving 4th and 5th graders to be introduced to engineering and programming concepts.
In an effort to provide this type of program and to get these young, brilliant minds excited about STEM at a young age, Amanda introduced The Bottle Rocket Coding Club that began yesterday with an Intro to Teaching class! The class kicked off the kids’ chapter on technology and gave them real world examples of how schools encourage the use of technology in their teaching.
