Exploring The World at TGCS
One of our Saturday Workshop students was so inspired by his Passports to the World course he created a trifold board of all the countries of the world, with their flags, capitals, and currency. He did this on his own time at home and brought it in to share with his instructor and classmates. We are so proud of him! He is five years old.
TGCS Student Wins National Competition
8 Year old, TGCS member student, Mark Leschinsky, has won the National Museum of Education sponsored competition for “Student Ideas For A Better America” with his invention of a “Self-Disinfecting Hazmat Suit” for healthcare workers that treat Ebola patients. We hope he inspires other children to attain their dreams also! Way to go Mark, congratulations! FULL STORY
