Weeklong camp using science, technology, engineering and math
Three sixth grade students from North Lamar ISD took part in the National Youth Leadership Forum: Pathways to STEM this summer at the University of Texas in Dallas. Ansley Fisher, Adyson Blount, and Cameron Floyd attended one of two sessions learning by doing with hands-on simulations and workshops.
During the six-day residency program where they stayed in campus dorms, the three learned about coding, robotics, medicine, and engineering. Today, most career fields require a firm foundation of science, technology, engineering, and math. These high-aspiring students were able to take part in exploring these fields in depth giving them the tools needed to make decisions about their futures while making new friends.
Bailey Intermediate counselor Keith Chalupa nominated the students at the end of their fifth-grade year.
