    Educating Migrant Children
    There are about 600 migrant workers who come to Delaware every year. Older kids can join their parents in the fields, but what about the younger kids? They can enroll in a special scholastic camp, which has been around for a half century.

    Safety Town
    For 33 years, kids in New Castle County have learned things like how to dial 9-1-1 or stop, drop and roll through a beloved program called Safety Town. It’s been around so long that now a new generation of children is learning these important, timeless lessons.

    Girls empowerment STEM
    As the 2017 school year gets ready to hit its holiday break, we thought it would be a good time to look back on one student’s effort to get her peers excited about staying in the classroom.

    Bike bridge
    If you’ve traveled on I-95 northbound over the Christina River, you may have noticed a bridge taking shape. It’s a long-planned bike trail extending from the Wilmington Riverfront. It’s all part of Delaware’s effort to be ‘the’ bike friendliest state in the country.

    Lolah Soul
    A chance encounter sparked a business idea for a Wilmington woman. Kymsha Martin stepped out on faith and created a fearless line of jewelry under the brand name Lolah Soul.

    First Experience: Art quilts
    Virginia Abrams was trained in organic and biochemistry. But in 1997, she discovered something else, quilting. Turns out, she was able to marry her training with her love of sewing to create wonderful art quilts. It’s our first experience this week.
