STEM Center helps students 'Reach for the Sky'

STEM students.jpgThe STEM Education Center's Reach for the Sky program, which works with students on the White Earth Reservation, is featured on the University's home page. The story, "Helping students reach higher," describes this innovative program, targeted at students in grades 4-8, that engages them in hands-on, culturally relevant activities in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) disciplines.

The center's co-director and associate professor Gillian Roehrig is quoted extensively in the story, which also features a video clip of students launching weather balloons, the highlight of this year's student projects (see video below).
