Students in the Moon Area Middle School (MAMS) partnered with the Tech Ed Department last month to assist a local charity.
Middle school students worked with teachers Mr. Finn and Mr. Hepak to disassemble old bicycles and organize the various bike parts for Communicycle, a local charity that takes donated bikes, fixes them, and then gives them back to local kids in need.
Students worked last month to take the bicycles apart and salvage the parts Communicycle can use to repair bikes for donation.
"Communicycle is a local outreach program that builds a sense of community and connects people through bikes," said Lee Montanari, founder of Communicycle. "In our neighborhood and shop programs, we work with both kids and adults to repair their bikes or refurbish donated bikes for them to keep. Our motto is 'Every kid in my town has a bike.'"
Students enjoyed the hands-on project that will benefit other students in need.
“It’s a great opportunity for these students to use reverse engineering to see how stuff works all while helping out the local community," Mr. Finn said. "This activity was just the start of a number of great things we plan to do with Communicycle.”
