Sherwood students enjoyed ecological gardening and exploring a marvelous interactive STEM “museum” as part of the school’s annual STEM Day. The annual PTA-sponsored event provides essential promotion of science, technology, engineering and math.

This year’s STEM Day featured a special collaborative effort with the local Seatuck Environmental Association and parent volunteers to plant native grass outside the school.

“The major objective of STEM Day is the development of independent and creative thinking processes for our students,” said Principal Maureen Martin.  “In the future, students will need to be part of a scientific community, so it is important that they have a clear understanding of STEM and that they participated in all the activities possible as part of the day.”
