Students, teachers, and even a superintendent from La Junta and Manzanola visited STEM School Highlands Ranch on Nov. 14th, 2019.
The shared culture, learning, and student-driven goals inspired everyone.
We learned that we have much in common, especially a love for discovery, collaboration, innovation, and culture.
One goal is to see if we can work together in meaningful ways that promote global citizenship, kindness, and innovation.
After visiting STEM, the La Junta students and teachers had lunch at Children's hospital (South) followed by a tour of Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin innovators Sue Linch and Darin Bolthouse were our hosts. They validated the the potential of everyone working together to prepare students for future careers and collaborations.
In addition to VR and the AMAZING work led by Darin Bolthouse, we also were able to see two GOES satellites
