During the month of June, the Nebo School District held a special four-week program for 5th and 6th-grade students to inspire and promote interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). The program was held at the school district’s Advanced Learning Center in Salem. A total of 64 young people attended. During the four weeks, the students were involved in a variety of fun projects in 3D Design and Printing, Science and Physics, Aviation, and Robotics. In addition to hands-on projects, a big attraction for everyone was when Universal helicopters landed one of their flying machines in the school’s back parking lot. The intent was to make learning fun and stimulate future interests, dreams, and career possibilities. This was a neat opportunity for local kids to see and do things that are fun activities that will impact their future aspirations. Thank you, JoAnn Tuttle, for writing the grant to bring the STEM Summer Camp to our community.
