Good News for The STEM Connection

Good News from Vera…

Twenty-five campers, volunteers and staff spent the past week at Moore Road Farm learning about the Amazing Animal Kingdom! They hiked, explored, observed, collected, classified, used science tools and had a wonderful week!

The bee hive is complete and in position waiting for bees!

The broccoli is ready for picking and participants from camp all enjoyed harvesting and taste testing! One camper said, “I never knew broccoli could so taste so good!”

Thank you to everyone that made this news possible!
