A young lady approached the Osmo Newton game, and after a try decided she was unable to complete the challenge. She seemed insecure, and when I suggested she try again, she initially resisted. On her second try, she beat the level! Prompted to say, “I am awesome,” she muttered the reaction somewhat unwillingly--but with a big grin on her face.
Look at the faces on these kids in the pictures. Engagement, growth, achievement.
Thanks to KRESA EFE and Stryker for the opportunity to serve SW Michigan kids at this awesome event!
And congratulations to the Growlers on their two wins!
