Our mission for this program is to let the FCSN students run it themselves. From the physical tasks of cleaning, sorting, and building the products to designing the instructions for products and managing inventories, orders, and finance –– if the students could work together, each in their own strengths and interests, they could actually form a company and learn important life skills on the road to independence.
FCSN students are just as smart, talented, and sympathetic as you and me. They may just need extra time or a little boost to complete a task or fine tune a skill. Through Build a Future, we want to prepare the FCSN students for the real world ahead of them, to integrate them into society.
During COVID-19 pandemic, I designed LEGO BOOST curriculum and taught members live on Zoom every week so members could enjoy the love of building when being "shelter-at-home".
As the club expanded, we moved to the multipurpose room with open space and a comfortable working environment. Every week, the students meet to work on candy dispensers as well as packaging and sorting.
25 candy dispensers were sold at the 2018 Gala. Some members came and were proud to show their products. All the visitors were extremely amazed at the talent and hard work that the members have and put into Build a Future.
