Core Enrichment: STEAM 

(Resuming Jan 2021)

The Kush, Inc. EduTech Core Enrichment Program provides 21st century STEAM enrichment activities for students in grades 4 thru 12.  Participants navigate hands-on projects to experience STEAM subjects while exploring Los Angeles. Learners work side by side with volunteer professors, experts, and graduate level students to explore STEAM from an applied perspective.

  • Science: Students explore scientific theories, concepts, and hypothesis via Southern California's beaches, lakes, parks, hills, forests, deserts, mountains, universities, and public venues.

  • Technology: Students learn applied technology by creating apps and games using Python and Java languages. Learners also learn how to build and maintain their own computers so that they can access technology from home.

  • Engineering: Students learn the fundamentals of engineering by designing and building robots and simple homebased gadgets using micro computer technologies.

  • Arts: Our Arts program is Hip Hop Centric and combines technology, art, and expression. Expert Hip Hop Artists teach youth the fundamentals of beat making, sound recording, and graphics design; while developing self expression skills via writing, photography, and public speaking workshops.

  • Math: Learners explore Algebraic functions thru routine activities thru cooking, shopping, and entrepreneurship.   

    

NOTE: This program is funded by donations, sponsorships, and fundraising activities to enable Kush, Inc. to provide the services for free to its youth.
