CANOPY provides tutoring and STEM programs to a diverse population of Shoreline Elementary School students, prioritizing students participating in the National School Lunch Program.
A fun way to learn about the environment is to make slime! To begin their recent science experiment, students learned about carbon and algae. Carbon is a gas that helps the Earth hold heat from the Sun. Too much carbon is making the Earth’s temperature warm up too much, causing climate change. Scientists are finding algae might be able to help – it absorbs carbon to make oxygen, and is found all over the world in places like oceans, lakes, and rivers.
Students then made slime, mixing together glue, saline solution, and baking soda.
Tutors work alongside students to strengthen math and reading skills and tackle homework challenges. Students receive more than 100 hours of one-on-one tutoring.
STEM programs help students strengthen skills in science, technology, engineering and math in a fun and creative environment.
A key part of CANOPY is the fun community that develops between students, their parents, and their tutors as they grow to become scholars.
