TECH & STEM Club

  • Sponsors: Mrs. Vivian and Mrs. Konrad

    Meeting Times: See the calendar below & listen to announcements for any changes and/or additions to the meeting dates.


    What do we do?

    The focus of the technology/STEM club is to provide an opportunity for students to explore areas of interest.  Some days are structured, and all students will be participating in the same activity.  Other days students will be allowed to choose a long term project that they can work on individually or with a small group of friends.  The days and times vary throughout the week, so it is important to use the calendar to decide what days to join.  Students can come to every meeting or join us for just the ones that fit in their schedule or are of interest.

    All students in grade 6, 7, and 8 are welcome!
    Come and try us out. Questions? Ask Mrs. Vivian or Mrs. Konrad
