Tronix Team @ Lights on Afterschool Rally at the Capitol!

Tronix Team was one of eighteen local afterschool programs featured at yesterday’s rally at the Minnesota State Capitol! We were proud to join the one million Americans across the country celebrating Afterschool programs at the Afterschool Alliance’s 10th annual Lights On Afterschool!

This nationwide event calls attention to the importance of Afterschool programs and the resources required to keep the lights on and the doors open.

Throughout the afternoon hundreds of students participated in activities run by local programs such as the Science Museum of Minnesota, the East Side Arts Council and more!  At the Tronix Team booth,our instructor Eli worked with students as they navigated our “Electronic Obstacle Course” and generated electricity for a boombox using a hand-powered motor!
