Get Money Smart with Sparks Fly, Financial Literacy for Youth

Students experience the Aha! moment. Sparks Fly when students connect with financial education.

School budgets are in effect! There’s a whirlwind of networking, collaborating and masterminding happening now.  Teachers are sharing new and improved ways to implement instruction.  An exciting school year lies ahead!

The New York City schools chancellor, Carmen Fariña, is directing schools to adopt STEM programs (science, technology, engineering and math), to improve outcomes for future employment and an improved personal and national economy.  Pretty heavy for a first grader, right? Perhaps.

Considering that her pre-schooler grandson showed her how to watch television on the computer, maybe it’s not that far-fetched. Watch the video here.

STEM education provides pathways for innovation of what already exists and encourages entrepreneurship.  Teachers can utilize STEM programs both during the school day as well as in after school programs.
