MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Bibb County School District is tackling the problem of pandemic learning loss with its summer program.

This year’s theme is STEAM Olympics.

“We are also offering opportunities for them to explore technology, engineering, the fine arts such as dance and arts visual arts, and so we really want them to have a fun time,” Teaching and Learning Assistant Superintendent Cleveland Johnson said.

The program will last for a total of 20 days and currently has 190 kids attending. Principal Betty Anderson says their main goal is to introduce students to new things.

“We want them to realize that learning is fun and that we can incorporate things like the STEM activities into everyday school,” Anderson said.

According to Anderson, it’s the first time many students have gotten to learn about STEAM.

Third grader Kaylen Jackson says his favorite part is getting to learn about numbers.

The Bibb County School District says it expects to have around 300 students by the end of the week. If you are looking to sign up, visit https://www.bcsdk12.net/ to be placed on the wait list.
