The opportunity is ripe to improve pedagogical practices across the board. Our team, which on any given day includes up to 40 people when you include core staff, the AmeriCorps team, teen interns, and volunteers, are pushing hard for learning that puts students in the heart of authentic problem-solving....

What is it like growing up black in Newport?

Ellen Pinnock, FabNewport’s AmeriCorps director, will host a ZoomHall roundtable amongst women of color discussing their experiences dealing with schools, doctors, work, and community. Please join us on July 30, 5:30-6:30, to listen and learn.

In this virtual online camp, you will learn to code and build interactive games using easy drag and drop blocks (Microbit and basic materials will be mailed to you).
Newport Experience 2020 (NEX)

We are super excited we have almost completed our second NEX week. Our students are having much fun and sharing with friends while learning.

We have explored Fort Adams; climbed the rigging of the tall ship Oliver Hazard Perry, visited Salve Regina University, identified trees in Miantonomi Park and local parks, taken the ferry to Jamestown, swam at several beaches and learning to paddle-board. Surfing, sailing, and Norman Bird Sanctuary are on the horizon.

For most of these activities, we use our bikes as a way of transportation and incentive for them to move!

Stay tuned for more news about our latest explorations around our little city by the sea.
