Without help from others, none of us can be the best that we can be. UCP would like to thank the following individuals and organizations.
Springside School/Chestnut Hill Academy:Each year, under the leadership of the head of the Science Department, Scott Stein and teacher Sarah Sullivan, Springside Schools advanced physics/engineering class develops an adaptation for a piece of equipment used to help individuals be as independent as possible. While their efforts are made on behalf the adults at UCP, their successes may one day benefit others. Another group of Springside science students come to UCP once a month to teach basic science lessons through hands-on experiences to the participant's in our PH Program. Experiment favorites have included turning liquids into solids by making ice cream and growing vegetables.
