Art & Science in One (AS1) is Cambridge School Volunteers’ outdoor STEAM program for fourth- and fifth-graders, currently embedded in one classroom at a Cambridge public elementary school. CSV trains mentors in techniques of nature journaling with children. Our staff then matches each mentor individually to one student. Mentors volunteer for two hours per week, for five weeks, in a structured, supervised program, accompanied by CSV staff, the trainer, and the classroom teacher. Together, the mentor and student develop and extend their observation skills, make discoveries in and about the habitat at Fresh Pond Reservation, practice drawing and recording information, and learn about science illustration.
Volunteer Trainer: Erica Beade
