A portion of our STEM budget at St. Louis School comes from grants, allowing us to provide students with amazing hands-on learning experiences through state-of-the-art equipment and software.
Last night, our school had the honor of celebrating our fourth STEM Kickstarter grant award at the prestigious AFCEA Annual Awards Night held at the beautiful Turf Valley Resort. It was a night filled with inspiration and recognition of our student's achievements.
During the event, our Eighth Grade STEM Ambassadors took the stage and showcased the outstanding capabilities of the Garmin eTrex10 handheld GPS devices. These devices were purchased with the grant proceeds, and they will play a crucial role in our geocaching challenges across the school grounds.
Geocaching is not only an exciting adventure, but it also helps our students develop practical skills such as map reading, navigation, and problem-solving. The audience was captivated as our ambassadors demonstrated the power of GPS technology and explained its impact on our daily lives.
Mrs. Whiteford was thrilled to share the grant award recipient stage with Mrs. Amy Brunner, Computer Science and Engineering Department Chair at Archbishop Spalding High School.
We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to AFCEA Central Maryland (CMD) for their continued support of our teachers, students, and the growth of our STEM program. Their generosity enables us to provide exceptional learning opportunities that shape our students into tomorrow's innovators.
