S.T.E.A.M. Education

i May 28th No Comments by

Thanks to our great partnerships with MIT, Harvard, and the local science community of Cambridge, we here at the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House are now offering a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) enrichment education program for our youth. Our program takes full advantage of our facilities here at the house (including an art room, computer lab, and classroom space equipped with modern technology comparable to what is used in high schools and colleges), as well as the many opportunities afforded by the cities of Boston and Cambridge!

Excited minds!

Learning is fun!

“We’re learning about energy and roller-coasters. It’s cool.” – Jean, 8

“We played with magnetic force.” – Lisa, 9

“We went to the MIT [Edgerton Center]…. I went up on stage!” – Daniel, 7

The New Playground Is Here!

i Oct 18th No Comments by

About 200 volunteers gathered in our backyard last Saturday to build a playground for the kids of the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House and the entire Area IV community. It was a tremendous day.

For seven straight hours, adults from far and wide worked outside, hammering, hauling and pouring concrete.

Indoors, the kids painted panels that spelled out the letters of the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House.

So many people worked for months to make it happen, and they all deserve our thanks. But our kids would still be playing on a tired pair of monkey bars and a couple of raggedy slides if not for the generous support of Boston Properties, Gillette, and- of course- the national non-profit KaBOOM!

Thanks to you, and hundreds of volunteers, we now have what one of our kids described as “a miracle.”
