Today (February 18th) a few volunteers from the Honor Society went to help out at the Splash into Science event at Sunrise ARC in Leesburg. During this event, Peyton, Robbie, Brett, Michelle and I ran different tables or “stations.” We were working with adults with mental disabilities like Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and other mental disorders. Michelle ran a fishing booth, Peyton ran a bean bag toss booth, Robbie ran an arts & crafts booth, Brett worked in the science matching booth, and I was in charge of a matching game booth.
At first, I was a little nervous but once we got started I really enjoyed it. It was interesting to work with people who are different yet very bright. All in all I think it was a great experience for everyone.
