KLRU Educational Services receives grant funds from Summer STEM Investment Hub

Central Texas Summer STEM Investment Hub

For the fourth consecutive year, KLRU Educational Services will work alongside 12 other partners to provide quality STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) summer experiences for low-income youth in Central Texas. The Central Texas Summer STEM Investment Hub, a collaborative of 13 funding partners, has dedicated not only funding, but professional development and research expertise to tackle two important challenges: a summer “slide” in skills for low-income youth relative to their higher-income peers, and the desire to grow a local workforce for future Central Texas STEM-related jobs.

KLRU has three chief roles in this Summer STEM work:

  • to determine how KLRU’s digital assets, including equipment and digital media resources, can complement the work of each partner for on-site use
  • to provide resources to youth and their families to extend the learning achieved into the remainder of the summer through our vast collection of online and app-based resources
  • to hold discussions with youth and their families about summer screen use. We know that screen use goes way up during the summer months. We wish to help families strive for a healthy balance of “smart” and “silly” screen time, along with other activities for all members of the family.

The grantees are:

Design Connect Create
UT Austin TACC
UT Austin Dell Medical School
UT Austin UTeach Outreach
AISD Eastside Memorial Vertical Team

For Sunday, April 23 — Holocaust Remembrance Programming includes:

Violins of Hope premieres on Sunday, April 23 at 1:00 pm
For Jews during the Holocaust, there wasn’t much reprieve from the despair and horror surrounding them, but music-particularly that of violins, which hold an important role in Jewish culture-offered temporary solace and a glimmer of humanity. Violinists in concentration camps were sometimes treated better and even spared their lives because of their ability to play this important instrument. VIOLINS OF HOPE: STRINGS OF THE HOLOCAUST follows the journey of Israeli violinmaker Amnon Weinstein in his efforts to restore violins recovered from the Holocaust, and captures the lessons and highlights the music the instruments now bring to others. 

Escape from a Nazi Death Camp repeats on Sunday, April 23 at 2:00 pm.  

Nova  “Holocaust Escape Tunnel” repeats on Sunday, April 23 at 3:00 pm. 

Through The Eye of the Needle:  The Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz airs on Sunday, April 23 at 4:00 pm.  
As a Holocaust survivor, Esther Nisenthal was 15 years old in October of 1942 when the Jews of her village in Poland were ordered by the Nazis to report to a nearby train station. Esther refused to go. Instead, saying goodbye to their family, she and her 13-year old sister Mania invented new identities for themselves as Polish Catholic farm girls, hiding in plain sight from the Nazis. Esther’s story of survival is remarkable on its own. 

Independent Lens “Last Laugh” premieres on Monday, April 24 at 9:00 pm.
For Holocaust Remembrance
, INDEPENDENT LENS premieres “The Last Laugh.” The Holocaust would seem to be an absolutely off-limits topic for comedy, but history shows that even the victims of the Nazi concentration camps themselves used humor as a means of survival and resistance. To explore this question, “The Last Laugh” weaves together an intimate portrait of Auschwitz survivor Renee Firestone alongside interviews with influential comedians and thinkers ranging from Mel Brooks to Chris Rock, and meshes in powerful, rare footage of cabarets inside the concentration camps themselves.
