“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember,
involve me and I learn.”– Benjamin Franklin
Now in our 6th year, our Math & Science themed programs teach the soft skills that first time employers and internship providers are seeking.
Program summaries are available below.
The Food Growing League (FGL) lets students practice their MATH and SCIENCE skills with the hands on activity of competitive food growing in the classroom.
The Fall Season microgreen harvests can be sold or given away as pet food. The Spring Season allows students to sell their plants as a Mother’s Day School Fundraiser.
The GrowBuck League (GBL) is a Financial Literacy Math Lab, Attendance, and Job Training program rolled into one. Students can be “paid” GrowBucks for each day of school they attend, grades, or good behavior.
At the end of the season, the students’ financial stats can be sent in to see how well they did against other classrooms in the League.
The League of Solutions is a friendly competition between students to see who can solve the most problems in their classroom.
Scores can be sent in to see how well your classroom did against other classrooms in the League.
Founded March 1st, 2014, we started out offering only financial literacy games. Our first year saw ReBuildUp’s games played by over 500 participants, many of them inner city youth, in over 37 events throughout the Greensboro-Triad region of North Carolina. We had our 50th event on August 29th, 2015. Food growing was added in the 2nd year as we shifted to working primarily with schools, especially those in food deserts.
