On behalf of the STEM Expo planning committee, I want to extend a heart-felt thank you to our sponsors, volunteers and attendeees in making this event so successful. It was the vision of the planning committee to provide a place for students to learn about the various careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math through hands on exploration stations. Generous contributions of time, talent, and fiances helped make our vision a reality by helping to offset the costs of the event and exploration stations.
Our sponsors, volunteers, and attendees are truly appreciated. Thanks again.
