Do It


Rhea Alexander

I volunteer in my local public elementary school in NYC with both the Lego Robotics program and the organic farming and gardening initiative. Both program enrich the education of our community's children to think out of the box. The theme for our Lego Robotics Challenge this year is Disaster Blasters, where we discuss weather and super storms, developing ideas for before, during and after a super storm. We have kindergardeners thru 3rd graders and 4-5 working on making the world a safer more collaborative place. For the urban farming project we have both a roof and ground level garden where we plant, nurture and harvest, taking some of the harvest into the cafeteria to learn about where our food comes from and how to eat healthier. This inspires children to think about their eating habits, see alternatives, then make changes and develop choice. It also connects urban kids to the earth in fun engaging ways.
