RAFT in the Community

Whether out in the community or at our facility, we provide fun and engaging learning activities.

RAFT in the community

Community Events

We support community events such as STEAM Showcases, family STEAM nights, and Generations Day. At these events, we can provide STEAM learning kits, design challenge materials, and support staff to engage participants in hands-on STEAM activities.

School Field Trips

Interested in bringing students to RAFT? RAFT School Field Trips help develop skills and knowledge in multiple content areas and grade bands. Interactive tours teach students to learn to identify materials based on their attributes and think of potential uses. They apply this learning in several hands-on activities and design challenges aligned to standards that explore real-world phenomena through innovative design and inquiry.

 Coming Soon: the RAFT Maker Mobile!

In February 2020, RAFT received a generous grant from the Sharks Foundation and Western Digital to create a RAFT Maker Mobile. It will serve under-resourced schools by providing high-quality training and learning materials in an effort to close the equity gap. The RAFT Maker Mobile comes equipped with all the tools, materials, and staff support to deliver our unique programming as a classroom extension.

Please contact our Education team at education@raft.net to bring the RAFT Maker Mobile to your school!
