The Somerville STEAM Academy (SSA) is a collaboration between sprout & co. and the Somerville Public Schools focused on both structural and curricular innovation in how Somerville students learn. Through partnerships with institutions like MIT, Tufts, and Harvard, and ties to an expanding base of innovative community organizations like Parts & Crafts and Artisan’s Asylum, we hope to make it Somerville’s next step toward educational excellence and equity for its families.
We invite you to join us this coming Monday, July 16, at 7:30PM at sprout’s studios for one of our monthly sprout spaghetti dinner, which will feature a talk by sprout’s own Alec Resnick about the Somerville STEAM Academy as a part of the theme Visions of a Learning Society.
In addition, our first public meeting to talk about the development process surrounding the SSA will be Wednesday July 18 at 7PM. Join us at sprout’s studios at 339R Summer St. just outside Davis Square for an overview of the innovation school design process as well as a discussion of our collective goals for education, our city, and the SSA.
If you have any questions about either of these, let us know at email@example.com!
