The OLLIE Initiative, in partnership with the Beaird Foundation, North Louisiana STEM Alliance and Sci-Port Discovery Center launches “Empowering Families to Participate in Youth Learning.

The program will provide fun and engaging hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) distance learning opportunities to high-need families in Caddo and Bossier Parish. We will support families with computer and internet capabilities at a first come, first serve bases. Participants will be connected with STEM experts videos and office hours to tie in context material with information about STEM careers relevant to the STEM learning experience and broader context of youth’s lives. STEM experts will hold office hours using “Zoom” video platforms with families.

We focus on STEM education because that is the direction that higher paying careers are going, the demand is increasing, and many STEM careers do not require the traditional 4-year degree. We consider STEM education as a pathway out of poverty and a doorway to generational wealth.

WE ARE OVERACHIEVERS LIVING LIFE IN EXCELLENCE #OLLIE

Take a deep breath after a long weekend - Sunday is always a great day to reflect, rest, and think about what's to come. A great place to do that is at Rhino Coffee, 624 Texas St., surrounded by other cool cats, sipping jive java and eating something hip and homemade. Just across the way is Robinson Film Center, showing House of Gucci and The Power of the Dog. Christmas has arrived at Sci-Port Discovery Center with Sno-Port 2021: The Snow Factory and Shreveport Aquarium with BELIEVE Lights the Night- the kiddos will love all this. BRUNCH today at Fatty Arbuckles and Red River Brewpub. History is no mystery at Shreveport Water Works Museum, 142 North Common St. It is SO interesting to see how citizens got water 100 years ago. Sanitation, or lack thereof, was a killer then. humm yoga on the mezzanine at 624 Texas St. (the Lofts), has classes today. At 10:30 is their Bhakti Flow class, at 1 pm is the humm Vinyasa II/III. This class is more advanced, but they have all sorts of options during the week- check out their schedule! Get prepared- we have LOADS of holiday magic hitting next week, from The Nutcracker at Riverview Hall to the Shreve Memorial BOOK SALE to the Shreveport Family Christmas Parade and Festival on Saturday. Hang with us to be in the know! Have a great day, enjoy, stay safe, and we'll see you downtown!
Sno-Port Drifts Back to Sci-Port
Science center strives to remain relevant
by Joe Todaro

When Dianne Clark came on board at Sci-Port Discovery Center, she said the task was to revitalize the facility and move it forward.

“One of my goals was to make sure that everyone knew that Sci-Port is a community resource. The Shreveport Convention and Tourist Bureau’s Stacey Brown reached out and said, “Let’s figure out how we can help draw traffic downtown during the fourth quarter.”

That’s the time of year when the holidays present significant opportunities for.... Read more on our digital format at https://npaper-wehaa.com/forum-news#2021/12/01/?article=3904543

Our friends over at Digital Media Institute at InterTech John Miralles create a cool interactive display for Sno-Port 2021: The Snow Factory at Sci-Port Discovery Center. Since I don't know how it works, I will just say that it is some form of magic. 😉 The kiddos (and adults, too) are loving it!
Hello, Sunday, everyone! Thanks to all who came downtown and enjoyed Downtown Shreveport Small Business Saturday! yesterday! I saw a lot of people eating and shopping and enjoying all that our small and local businesses had to offer- remember them through this holiday season as you are looking for the perfect gifts & experiences. Rockets Over the Red Christmas Festival was pushed today because of yesterday's inclement weather, so head to the riverfront for music, food trucks and at about 7 pm, fireworks! Rhino Coffee did a booming business the past couple of days- cool weather means their wonderful coffee drinks taste all the better. They are open today until 5 pm. Robinson Film Center is the place to see House Of Gucci - good reviews from local peeps who have seen it. Sci-Port Discovery Center's Sno-Port 2021: The Snow Factory is OPEN and the young kiddos will love everything about it, especially the 'ice' fishing! Shreveport Aquarium's BELIEVE Lights the Night and other fun holiday events are also OPEN now. Red River Brewpub has a great brunch menu for you today including their fun Taproom Trivia at 5:30 pm. Fatty Arbuckles in the Red River District has a new updated menu with Chef Brandon Sooter at the helm! It's all delish, made with much love and lots of footsteps. 😉 Shreveport Water Works Museum, 142 North Common, is a great stop today for a bit o' Shreveport history. Awesome tour guide Kevin Haines will tell you things that will make you realize what a blessing clean water flowing through the taps is! Don't forget that THURSDAY is December Downtown Shreveport Artwalk- this is our biggie, our LAST artwalk before Christmas, so come on out. Multiple stops- Artspace Shreveport, Lofts at 624, Robinson Film Center, Agora Borealis, Andress Artist & Entrepreneur Center, Big Sun Studios! Live music, food and drink specials and more!

My daughter had a great time here on Friday! She is determined to become an astronaut when she grows up and the staff were so supportive and encouraging of her space dreams and made sure that she knew that she can do it if she sets her mind to it.
