The prestigious Gulf Stream School will hold its GALAXY Auction on Saturday, April 30, 2022 under the stars at the Norton Museum of Art. The space-themed evening will feature a seated dinner, dancing, live music, silent and live auctions, and its proceeds will be focused toward key areas of sciences and technology at the school.
The science and technology curriculum is a source of pride at Gulf Stream School with “computational thinking in classroom activities throughout grade levels [to] give students a chance to think critically, problem-solve, apply knowledge, and learn in different ways,” according to Bridget Langford, Lower School Science/Lower School Computer Director of Technology for the Julien Arts and Innovation Center and Makerspace.
Langford says students in early childhood are introduced to computer science using “unplugged” activities, robots, and LEGO WeDo 2.0, followed by tech class beginning in first grade and with computer science incorporated into homeroom classes as well as special classes. Grade 5 students also have tech class twice a week and work on more advanced concepts including coding.
“Gulf Stream School believes there is no final frontier when it comes to learning, as the possibilities for enlightenment and discovery are as limitless as space itself,” said a school spokesperson.
The fundraiser will incorporate local brands that support Gulf Stream School and fuel its ongoing innovation, including Go Solar, Menin, The Ray Hotel, Rosenberg Diamonds & Co., Rudolph & Associates, Not My Mama’s, Allergenis, Marc Julien Homes, Gulf Stream Boat Club, Gracey-Backer Insurance, TownPlace Suites by Marriott Boynton Beach, Nicholson Muir, Carol Curtis Realty, Delray Dermatology, Main Street Home Loans, Robinson Family Fund, Ibis Builders and more.
The GSS Galaxy Auction is presented by the Parents’ Auxiliary Board and Co-Chaired by Lindsay Hays Saraj and Carly Bellis.
