Professional with expertise in this field
Our non-profit, A Call to College, frequently partners with The Works. This wonderful, hands-on center for history, art and the promotion of STEM is an incredible asset to our community . Our students from Newark City Schools benefit greatly from The Works, both through outreach that they sponsor (Kids Tech University, STEM Fest, Financial Fest, Art Exhibits, Rally in the Alley, just to name a few) and outreach that their staff conducts in our elementary and middle schools. Their education staff is top notch and the different exhibits they sponsor are creative, well-researched and community-aligned. Our county is very lucky to have such a unique resource that works hard to partner with others and promote learning for all ages.
