Bridging the Gap
The major goal of Palmetto Learning Academy is to promote family well-being by building stronger communities through collaborations and financial support. We understand the importance of engaging children at the earliest age possible through access to experiences that foster creativity, and a chance for them to be exposed to new and fascinating ideas. It’s also important to positively engage with parents/guardians as a way of strengthening the entire family.
As We Grow
Palmetto Learning Academy's, 'As we Grow', is a summer, project-based Agricultual STEM program designed to address critical thinking skills, reading and math deficiencies of young African American children, ages 6-11 years old, living in marginalized communities.
The project-based program gives students hands on approach in understanding how science, math, technology and engineering play a role in the foods they eat on a daily basis. Setting up farmers markets and selling their produce allows them to actively participate in South Carolina’s biggest financial industry.
The students will grow their own food the traditional way and using hydroponics. They will also get to experience a taste of farm life.
