Somali Community Services Coalition’s Summer Adventures youth program is in full swing! Each week, the kids in the program receive instruction in math and literacy and take part in fun activities and field trips surrounding a specific theme. We had Wacky World of Science week, during which we spent some time at the Pacific Science Center learning about ancient Egypt; Adventures with Wildlife week and a trip to the Woodland Park Zoo; Globetrotters week with a trip to the Wing Luke Asian Museum to learn about Asian history and culture; Under the Sea week and a trip to the Seattle Aquarium; and Health, Wealth, and Community week, which included a trip to the Tukwila Fire Station and Tukwila City Hall as well as Marra Farm to learn about urban agriculture and immigrant farmers. A local dentist also visited during Health, Wealth, and Community week and gave the kids free dental exams, free toothbrushes, and a lesson on how to properly brush their teeth.
