What is STEMShares?

STEMShares is our opportunity to bring our community together to give back and share what being #STEMStrong really means. Our community showed an amazing amount of support for us in our time of need, and giving back is a great way to honor the heroic actions of our students and staff. 

Sharing your #STEMShares 

We'd love for our community to share what they're doing during #STEMShares. Please consider sharing using our online submission form by clicking here. If you share on social media, we ask that you please use the #STEMShares so that our community can see.

Ideas for Getting Involved for #STEMShares

Attention All Makers with 3D Printers
Please join Mrs. Phillips in making 3d printed face shields bands! If you are interested in joining the efforts please go to . You will need to follow their protocol to produce the bands including wearing gloves and a face masåk and using the correct material for each type of print. There is even a STEM School Highlands Ranch Team on Make4Covid that you can join and ask questions you have. If you have any questions you can email Mrs. Phillips at . Together we can make a difference!
Sewing Masks
Sixth-grader Sarah Callahan and her mom shared with us her handmade face mask, along with a video tutorial on how anyone can make their own.
