The Children’s Museum of Phoenix and Kyrene School District are working together to build upon student creativity through STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) by introducing the “In The Pipeline” Program. A grant from Western Refining provided funds to Children’s Museum of Phoenix, which creates this opportunity for Kyrene School District. Students at Kyrene de los Cerritos, Kyrene de la Colina and Kyrene de las Manitas will have the opportunity to engage in this interactive activity through October and November 2017.

The program offers an exhibit of pipes, connectors, banners and tools with which children can construct long lines of pipe, towers, structures and skylines. According to the Children’s Museum of Phoenix, while creating, “children gain skill in following a mental plan, communicating with others, using spatial relations and gain knowledge of the physics involved in building.”
 
The program runs over a 5-week period, beginning at Kyrene de los Cerritos, with Kyrene de la Colina and Kyrene de las Manitas following.
