This was my 3rd time coming to TheArc and must say I had another great experience. I helped clear weeds and plant new flowers. It was a nice change of pace and by the end was really able to see a difference in how the planting area looked.
I had another great experience at TheARC. As before I helped clean the creek of garbage. Was quite shocked how quickly garbage returned since I was there the week before as well. Overall the experience went well except that I fell in the water.
THEARC was a great experience! I learned about many programs THEARC has and how they give back to the community. There is a creek that runs along THEARC which was filled with trash runoff from the streets. I helped clean the creek by picking up garbage both on the banks and in the water using full water proof suits. Was a great experience and will be returning to complete more hours!
This past weekend I volunteered at a FIRST Robotics competition in San Jose CA. I mentored and taught a group of 15 students. Was a great experience and felt great teaching younger students about STEM. The team ended up winning the whole competition!
