Uriel Pineda
Club President 2021-2022
 
 
At the July 27 meeting of the Rotary Club of North Jackson, Club Service Director, Bill Osborne, announced that the club has been approached by WGBH of Boston, MA to assist with a new program for pre-Kindergarten students. The program which is named "Wombats" is a successor to the "Aha Island" program that our club members used in 2019 - 2021.
 
The Wombats program features an Australian animal that lives in trees. It is targeted at teaching Computational Thinking (CT) which is important to STEM education and to problem-solving skills. CT was also a goal of Aha Island.
 
"Wombats" is being offered to the Rotary Club of North Jackson at no cost. WGBH is applying for a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to develop the program. If that grant is awarded, some of our club members may need to travel to Boston to work on the program. Per WGBH, any travel expenses would be covered by the grant.
 
Since Wombats would be available to the Rotary Club of North Jackson at no cost and it is a successor to the work that we have been doing at Walton School, we have told WGBH that our club wants to proceed with the proposed program.
