The Sentinel: Aurora students build their own skateboards with Amazon’s help

Story excerpt:

"Students at East Middle School got to build their own skateboards Thursday as part of a partnership between the APS Foundation, Amazon and other local organizations.

About 75 sixth and seventh grade students in the school’s woodworking class took part in the project. After building the skateboards, students were each given a helmet and went down to the gym for a skateboarding demo.

This is the second year of the partnership between Amazon and the district, which last year held a similar event for students at Murphy Creek K-8. Brittany Morris Saunders, head of community affairs for Amazon in Colorado, said that the program is part of the company’s future engineer program to increase STEM opportunities for K-12 students."
