Room 5 students build bridges, friendships with Sylvan Park buddies
\Largely led by Mirman's Director of STEM Jeffery Flagg in partnership with Service Learning faculty and volunteers, Room 5 teachers, and Sylvan Park's own team of educators, Mirman students joined their Sylvan Park buddies to tackle a collaborative STEAM learning challenge. The students spent the day constructing bridges together. "They also built the metaphorical bridge of friendship!" said Mirman's Director of Inclusivity and Equity Connie Chiu.
These Room 5 students have been buddies with their Sylvan Park friends from down the road in Van Nuys since their book and e-reader literacy project last year.
"I'm so excited for what's to come with this partnership," observed one of the Mirman staff leads, Assistant to Division Heads and Registrar Brittani Fowlin.
