On March 7, three D.C. Everest (DCE) science instructors presented at the 2019 Wisconsin Society of Science Teachers (WSST) Convention in Madison, Wisconsin. WSST is the largest membership organization in Wisconsin focused on the advancement of science education.
Each year, the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program and the National Science Teachers Association host the eCYBERMISSION competition — a web-based science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) competition for students in 6th – 9th grades. Teams of students must formulate a question, define a challenge faced by their community and then construct explanations and design solutions for that problem.
An Eagle Scout Service Project is demanding — and with good reason. The project serves as a culmination of a Scout’s leadership training and is designed to be beneficial to the community, a school or religious institution. The process is rigorous — requiring planning, design, fundraising, formal paperwork, consultation and a series of approvals. It is a process that also relies heavily on collaboration — which is where the leadership comes in.
