Mike Shallenberger, our lead STEM School Engineering Teacher, Director of P-TECH (Mechatronics), and innovator in urban/rural partnerships offered to help a select a group of his advanced high school engineering students to facilitate a collaboration with students from our rural partner schools.
Above is Lillian, Abby, and Noah in a ZOOM meeting with Aaron (UBTECH engineer) and Craig Gill (UBTECH Educational Partnerships).
Having STEM school students facilitate the collaboration has resulted in a culture of caring that empowers all students.
Below are some videos of Lillian and Noah from STEM meeting Manzanola MS students for the first time. BTW - They build their robots in one session. WOW!
Students from Manzanola
This is incredible. The only complaint I have is that I do not get to play.
Thanks to you all for putting in so much effort.
-- Craig Parker (Lone Star School Teacher)
This has been amazing for us. The kids come in at lunch and try to improve on their ideas. I am so glad that our school was contacted and that we said yes!! Thank you.
-- Dee James (Ouray Teacher)
UBTECH Education is so blessed to be partnering with you, your kids, and the program in general to honor Kendrick and the culture you all have built at STEM School.
