Students of the Prenda Micro-school at the Assembly of God Church in San Carlos got a treat recently when Pastor Glen Davis showed up with two Stanford University students who had volunteered their time during spring break to demonstrate some science concepts for them.

Melonie Leung and Andrew Zhao took a different concept each day using hands on equipment including a 3-D printer. On Tuesday they helped students find templates on the internet for the printer to make.

The school’s first class of six students meet from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday to work on computer learning programs under the mentorship of Celene Tewawina.

This private school is designed to be flexible and student centered according to Jeremiah Cota, whose uncle the Reverend Adolph O. Cota’s church is hosting the school. It is a private school, but the same sort of scholarship is available that enable students to attend other private schools in the San Carlos Community.
