The One World STEAM Camp Was A Success!

July 26, 2019 | One World

Shan Lateef, Mason Simms, Paul David Quimby, Sofia Quint, Delaney Walts and Leena Sherdil are juniors in high school who share a passion for making a difference in their communities. They came together in the summer of 2018 to establish One World, a non-profit organization that centered around their strengths and passions. They had a common vision to unite and empower people through the use of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) on a local and global basis. To achieve this goal their organization seeks diverse opportunities to teach, engage and inspire underprivileged youth and expose them to the endless opportunities in STEAM fields.

This summer One World partnered with Neabsco Elementary, a Title I school in Prince William County, to boldly deliver a S.T.E.A.M.  enrichment camp to 27 students. Campers were immersed in hands-on activities and projects that build interest, knowledge, and  technical skills that they could take with them into the classroom and beyond. They spent each day of the five-day camp devoted to a single aspect of STEAM ultimately weaving them all together to create a capstone project conceived and built entirely by the students. The camp was led Ms. Taryn Harrington a teacher in Prince William County Schools who has taught some of the One World Officers while they were at Thurgood Marshall elementary school.

 

All of the One World Officers reside in Prince William County. Lateef attends Thomas Jefferson High School in Alexandria, VA while Simms, Quimby, Quint, Walts and Sherdil attend Charles Colgan High School in Manassas, VA.

One World Is In The Process of Providing Forms of Technology To An Underprivileged School in India.

June 12, 2019 | One World

 

Deep within the slums of Chennai, India, presides an all girls school. A few of the board members from the One World team visited the school a few months ago and realized that the school had absolutely no access to technology. One World has a firm belief that technology should be available for all students to enhance their education and make learning more effective. We are currently fundraising to provide laptops, software, smart-boards, and a projection system for the school. If you would like to donate to this cause, please visit our donate page.

It is becoming more apparent that access to tutoring and workshop programs is extremely limited for low-income families. One World is currently communicating with local Latino churches to begin such programs after weekly services. Once we have finalized the logistics behind this program, we will post an update here!
