Science Education

Nasa Project 

Our Club participates with the Fiddlernaut Club of Isle of Hope School. Seventh and eighth-grade students learn and apply concepts of engineering, astrophysics and orbital spaceflight. Fiddlernaut Teams have won awards for their skills launching and safely landing the space shuttle in a national NASA competition. Our Club built a simulator (photo at left) for classroom practice.

International- Maternal & Child Health

Our Club, with Rotary District 6250 and Phalarope, is helping develop a maternal and child health health program in 20  rural communities in Guatemala. The goal is to reduce maternal mortality by creating a continuum of care between a health center and members of remote rural communities. We do this by using forming community traditional medical teams composed of health promoters and traditional Mayan midwives (comadronas).

Early Childhood Education

Our Rotary Club promotes and supports early childhood education in greater Savannah. Members participate in the annual Rotary Read-in at Hesse and Isle of Hope Schools – all 45 classrooms. We have a partnership with Hesse to provide funding for computers, and volunteer tutors and mentors. Additional financial support goes to innovative organizations like Parent University, Horizons Savannah, Loop It Up Savannah, L.O.V.E. Mentors, and Y-Readers Program (YMCA of Coastal)
