Since the summer of 2014, OKAN has collaborated with the City of Oklahoma City’s Strong Neighborhoods Initiative, Oklahoma City Public Schools, and community stakeholders to plan and implement afterschool and summer S.T.E.A.M. Academies for the students of F.D. Moon Elementary.
The program takes place afterschool during the regular school year and for 4 weeks during the summer. Multiple high quality program providers, community organizations and professional teaching staff come together to provide exciting and engaging STEAM learning.
