Send Students to S.T.E.M. Forum 2016 in Chicago
Organized by: Anna Olson
I have nominated ten of my top students this year for an experience of a lifetime and six have chosen to attend- Caleb Almquist, Taylor Burke, Alicia Carrasca, Tyler Piester, Savannah Platt, and Jenna Suddeth. These students will be staying a week in Chicago at Loyola College, where they will be learning more about and having hands on experience with science, technology, engineering, and math, and to hear from several people who have chosen careers in these fields, including two astronauts. They will come away with knowledge, skills, leadership, and friends that will help them achieve their goals of becoming engineers, doctors, and even President in the future. I am proud of them for their hard work and dedication in my classroom, which is why I'm asking you to help me make this experience possible for each of them. I am hoping by June of 2016 we can support each of them with at least half of their cost to go to Chicago, which totals $2000.00 for food, lodging, activities, speakers, and older team leaders for each group of students to be chaperoned and led each day. Thank you so much for any and all support you can give these young leaders of the future. Be looking out for our other fundraisers as well- selling chocolate, pizza hut night, bake sales, and more. These students are beyond excited and working hard to raise as much money as they can to contribute to this experience!
