PLAINFIELD, NJ –July 25, 2019 - On Thursday, August 1, 2019, Plainfield Public Schools, in partnership with School Based Youth Services and Plainfield Community Outreach, will hold its 10th Annual 21st CCLC End of Summer Museum Walk and Dance Showcase at Plainfield High School Auditorium, 950 Park Avenue Plainfield, NJ 07060. The Museum Walk will begin at 6PM and the Dance Showcase will begin promptly at 7PM.

To promote the spirit of summer learning in fun and innovative ways, the over 100 students enrolled in the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Summer Learning Camp are exploring a single-subject theme focusing on artificial intelligence. All the students are enrolled in academic and arts enrichment classes exploring artificial intelligence through the decades. Thus, in art class with Mr. Gregory Thomas, the students are building simulated robots. In digital art class with Ms. Roxanne Santiago, they are using photography and graphics to explore the speed in which their sketchbook can work to help them create an art piece, and in dance class with Mr. M.A. Taylor, the students are interpreting what an automated dancer would look like with music from the 80s and 90s.
