High School STEM Academy Freshmen Engineer Plankton Nets

High School STEM Academy Freshmen Engineer Plankton Nets thumbnail161479

This year, high school teachers Alexandra Nohowec and Dennis Pope launched the school’s first STEM Academy for freshmen. Students in the program spend a half-year focusing on research skills with Nohowec, and the other half of the year engaged in engineering technology with Pope. This fall, the two educators brought their students together for a joint STEM project, researching ways to sample plankton and engineering their own plankton nets. Together, the students all ventured on a field trip to test their designs.
