The Valparaiso University women’s basketball team participated in a community service project on Friday afternoon at the Michigan Science Center in Detroit.
The Valpo players worked with first, second and third grade students from an Engineering 101 Camp. The goal of the activity was to open students’ minds to science, technology, engineering and math fields and how they impact the world around us, with Crusader players assisting the students in STEM-related activities.
“It’s always fun to give back to kids,” Valpo head coach Tracey Dorow said. “Our players do a tremendous job with that. At one time our players were little kids too. Days like today show what great people we have. I love that our players love to give.”
The project was part of the Horizon League’s initiative to build a presence in Detroit leading up to Motor City Madness in March, when Detroit hosts both the women’s and men’s Horizon League Tournaments.
