The May 1st Kurn Hattin Fundraising Event to support technology upgrades and the new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) lab, featuring Captain Richard Phillips, has been postponed until October 2nd. Captain Phillips was the center of an extraordinary international drama when he was captured by Somali pirates who attacked and boarded his ship. The event was later made into a motion picture by Columbia Pictures starring Tom Hanks.
A STEAM curriculum was recently introduced at the Kurn Hattin school, and has also been incorporated in Kurn Hattin’s Summer Rec Program. A STEAM-based curriculum allows students to feel comfortable with technology and hand-on learning, and also provides an understanding as to how science, technology, math and the arts work together.
Tickets to the event can be purchased at kurnhattin.org/CaptainPhillips, or by contacting Heather at (802) 721-6916. Tickets are also available for purchase at these locations: Vermont Artisan Designs, Brattleboro, VT, Brattleboro Savings & Loan, Brattleboro, VT, The Threaded Trunk Boutique, Bellows Falls, VT, The Village Blooms, Walpole, NH, Off the Wall Framing, Northampton, MA, and Breeze Tees, Keene, NH, and Village Square Booksellers, Bellows Falls, VT.
