Using STEM to grow food for the community at this school site.
We had some issues due to school classes being closed for 14 days because of Covid. Luckly we had so many involved that we just rearrange things.
During the project we really learned how the supply chain issues could stop or cause issues in the project In December we ordered a 3D printer so that youth can engineer the parts if it is just plastic. The side bonus is that the youth is learnin g ToyBox application, Tinkercad, and Autocad to develop the parts.
We work on this every year. This next year is to develop a part system so we are not tied to waiting on Amazon orders or Lowes. We even went through the lumber storage with Greene Fence to deliver the wood for the raise beds for LeMay site.
Not only is Birchcrest site operational serving 350 youth but we are building LeMay site to add another 360 youth. If Millard Public Schools develop another site we will be at 1,800 youth in Omaha involved. More food is coming year round for the shelters from these sites.
We have great parts like yourself adding to our success. We share our community make with others.
