Six Link scholars participated in Schools That Can Newark‘s 4th Annual Design Day Challenge at NJIT, joining students from several Newark schools. The participants were charged with addressing a challenge facing Newark – designing the next phase of the Mulberry Street Mall. In small groups (intermixing the students from the various schools), scholars brainstormed ideas and built models of their vision of the mall. Our students had a great time engaging in real-world learning and discovered that they can make a difference in their community.
