Learning Exchange

Learning Exchange (LE) is an initiative started in 2011 to build excitement around learning math through technology. Because Providence students are falling behind in math, LE courses use computers to show middle schoolers how they can apply the subject in fun and creative ways. Students have the opportunity to become computer scientists and craft games and animations using the Scratch environment. With our Engineering/Design program, they have the opportunity to build, revise and perfect their own bridges and planes. Our program is based on one simple realization: that learning is most fun and exciting when it is made relevant to each student.
