Over halfway through with the pilot!

It’s crazy, I know, but we’re more than halfway through with our 7 week pilot program.  This week, the Schoobents will be receiving their fourth tutoring session (out of 6), and on Saturday, they’ll be attending a lecture on plankton (details to come!) and then heading to the NY Aquarium in Coney Island.

As I mentioned before, I want Schooba to foster an engagement in science for our students and cause them to choose to spend their free time pursuing science learning.  At the start of the pilot, my goal was for 75% of the Schoobents to have at least a 75% attendance.  Well, at our tutoring sessions, so far, 75% of the Schoobents have a 100% attendance!!  But what has been most exciting isn’t that the Schoobents have been showing up, it’s that in the first three weeks, we have had eight different civilian students (i.e. not Schoobents) show up for tutoring!  Now, that’s totally awesome.

1,2,3, Schooba!
