EAST is education accelerated by service and technology. We inspire change. We transform schools and communities by empowering people with technology, by encouraging critical thinking and creative problem-solving, and by engaging them in positive, real-world experiences. We advocate lifelong learning and community service. Through EAST, participants become positive agents of change to improve the world around them.
There are EAST programs at 3 middle schools (Joe T. Robinson, Maumelle and Sylvan Hills), 5 high schools (Joe T. Robinson, Maumelle, Mills, Sylvan Hills, Sylvan Hills North), and 1 elementary school (Lawson).
In addition to establishing unique environments in schools and offering technical support, EAST also provides powerful technology training both to students and educators, including professional development focusing on integrating technology into any classroom, regardless of subject.
