Circle of Light Associates (COLA), a 501(c)3
Non-Profit Organization, understands the importance of our children receiving
a quality education and wants to enhance their educational opportunities. Many of the kids we work with attend schools
in the St. Louis area that do not have accreditation, therefore limiting knowledge and
resources to build their futures. In the United States, our schools often fall
behind other countries in teaching science and engineering foundations to build
careers in the innovation technologies. COLA, our non-profit organization,
started the COLA STEM Initiative to offer programs to combat learning
deficiencies in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
COLA is partnering with FIRST (For Inspiration and
Recognition of Science and Technology) to increase learning within our
community. FIRST was founded by Dean
Kamen with the mission to show students of all ages that science, technology
and problem-solving are not only fun and rewarding, but are proven paths to
successful careers and a bright future for all of us. (www.usfirst.org)
This league provides a comprehensive opportunity for children in the community to learn the essentials of communication, teamwork, problem-solving, and having fun!
