Full STEAM Ahead

SarahAnn Walker, a grade 11 student at Coalhurst High School, is passionate about the sciences and sharing that passion with others. Under the guidance of Mr. Swen, she has started a STEAM club that runs at lunch on Tuesdays where grade 7-12 students can join in fun activities related to science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. To get the group going, Walker wrote a Youth in Action Grant application to the Community Foundation and was successful in obtaining a $1600 grant to fund some of the materials needed for the activities along with a planned field trip to a local cloning lab. It is great to see such leadership and initiative from one of our students to give back and grow the sciences at CHS. Congratulations SarahAnn.
