“One of the virtues of being very young is that you don’t let the facts get in the way of your imagination.” Sam Levenson
A review of our Community Investment and Focus Guidelines would tell you that Osum is passionate about initiatives that help children and youth develop into extraordinary people. Not only are we inspired by the creativeness of young minds; we are wowed by their ability to see possibilities where, sometimes, the more “experienced” generation might see obstacles.
Recently, members of the Osum team attended the kick-off night for Junior FIRST® LEGO® League – offered through Cold Lake and District FCSS. The program is focused on building an interest in science and engineering in children aged six to nine. Participants are faced with a real-world challenge and then asked to direct their curiosity and imagination towards solving it.
The program runs from April 11th until May 16th and I think you can tell from the picture below that our staff had just as much fun as the kids!
