STEM Professionals Needed for April 28th

Are you or do you know a science, technology, engineering and/or math professional?  Our 4th & 5th Graders would love to interview you and find out more about what you do.

Details: Friday, April 28th from 8:45am – 11am.  Our 4th & 5th graders read a short biographical statement about each STEM professional, the volunteers introduce themselves briefly and then our students walk around with prepared questions and short interviews.

Please contact Theodore Muth (5th grade parent) if you or someone you know can help either as a STEM professional and/or with set up of the day.
