A group of great people this week put on a demonstration of a Lights On After School program at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds. And as you can see from the pictures, the turn out was terrific.
It was a joint operation of 21st Century After School, After School Alliance, OMSI Science and Youth Resource Fair, Youth Development Coalition of Lincoln County and other great groups like OSU Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners, 4-H, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, Newport Recreation, Samaritan Health and HELP!
The whole point of all this is to keep kids busy – engaged in the world around them in interesting ways, and to keep them out of trouble.
This week’s one time demonstration of Lights On After School saw 12 activity tables filled with all sort of fun learning games and projects including hands on art, sports challenge, Make It and Take It, OMSI Chemistry Show and other supervised, safe and interesting learning activities.
