Schooba reaches 20 kids!

On January 15, The Schooba Academy launched its first pilot program with 9 students from Lyons Community School.  As part of the Schooba course, every student began to receive private science tutoring one day a week after school for 90 minutes.  By the second week of the program, however, something interesting began to happen.  Kids that were not a part of our original group began showing up!  Some were interested in joining the program, some were just interested in the tutoring, and some just didn’t want to go home and be bored (50% of American students say they are “bored and have nothing to do” when they are out of school, Public Agenda, 2004).  All of them, however, were choosing to spend their free time pursuing the learning of science.  How was I to deny them of that!?  And so the Schooba tutoring sessions turned into the Schooba tutoring center, where any student was welcome to come or go as they pleased.  And after just 5 weeks of Schooba, I am proud to announce that attendance has consistently been over 100%, and we have provided free private science tutoring to 20 different kids!
