A Busy Last Few Weeks, But It Was Worth It
In the last couple of weeks, we’ve had a lot of great things happen. So we’d like to share.
First, we competed last month (on April 27th) in the MATE/STEMNASIUM Underwater ROV Competition and our #STEMKids did amazingly well. We’re very proud of them, and even more, we’re ecstatic about what they were able to learn from the process of planning and building an underwater ROV.
And then making it actually work. Here are the participating students.
And here are the results:

This past weekend we also had a STEMFest, a festival of the science nerds, enthusiasts and anyone looking to have a good time. It took place at our sister school, Global Prep Academy.
Students, parents and the Indianapolis community enjoyed STEM-focused activities like drone racing and more traditional fare such as a raffle, slime, a bouncy house, games and face painting.
For the parents, students and members of the Indianapolis community who joined us, thank you!
Next, we’re going to slow things down since school is almost out for summer. In our next post, we’ll introduce you (or suggest if you already know) to the science fiction genre.
We’ll highlight what this genre is, its benefit to STEM students and a few different titles to check out this summer. Isaac Asimov, anyone?
Until then, thanks so much to everyone (all of you) for your support these last few weeks.
See you soon.
