JEF has fully funded the middle school teams competing in the First Lego League robotics program. At times, over ¼ of the Lawn School students participated. For our small town, we have been very successful with most teams qualifying for the state competition and winning many awards including 2nd place twice, the innovation award for project idea, programming awards, and more.
JEF also supports instructional programs for the elementary school as well as kids interested in learning more but not ready to commit to the competitive level.
The Conanicut Island Raptor Project (CIRP) is a hands-on environmental education program that studies Jamestown’s migratory ospreys. A web camera atop the osprey nest at Jamestown’s Marsh Meadows enables anyone with access to the web to observe real-time images of the nesting birds’ routine. Donations are fully tax-deductible and should be made to payable to JEF but earmarked for CIRP.
