POWER-ASAS-Showcase1

Students from our Providing Opportunities with Educational Readiness (P.O.W.E.R.) program participated in a #STEAMfair on Capitol Hill! Leading up to the event, students attended an HTML coding class with the After-School All-Stars program. The showcase was an opportunity for the students to share their work with members of Congress, staffers and other elected officials.

Students from across the District presented projects in coding, video game design, circuitry and digital music production. The classes allow students to connect STEAM education with real world careers and explore new possibilities.

UPO’s Providing Opportunities with Educational Readiness (P.O.W.E.R.) program is designed to help financially challenged youth living in DC’s Ward 8 succeed in middle school and high school as a pathway to college admission and achievement.
