Exciting changes to our Activity Kit area and Computer Lab!RAFT has created a more interactive and welcoming Activity Kit area where we will provide hands-on demos and displays. This area is full of giant legos with bright colors and organized by subject area. Members will have a more cohesive and collaborative atmosphere.
RAFT wants to provide our educators with the most up to date technology training. To do that, we have decided to transition to mobile technology in our classrooms. We are no longer using desktop computers in our lab. We will run trainings using SMART Boards, tablets, and laptops.
RAFT is committed to giving our members the best hands-on educational support and customer service.
RAFT Institutes (Math, Science, and Innovation multi-day sessions) will inspire and encourage you to engage in a variety of hands-on teaching methods through practical exercises using commonly found materials.
Thanks to generous donor support, the Summer Institutes are offered at no charge to RAFT members!
