“It was a great trip…an educational experience for our students and a lot of fun,” said Kincaid. This trip also marked the first time McU students have gone on a school trip out of state aside from the 8th grade trips to Cedar Point.

 

McU gets STEM Certified!

STEMFestival

On Wednesday, March 26th, 2014, McCollough-Unis will become the first traditional public school in the Midwest to become STEM Certified thanks to a partnership with STEM.org.

STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics and often refers to an approach in teaching that concentrates instruction in those four areas. McCollough-Unis is being recognized for their commitment to STEM education because of their completion of a rigorous STEM focused series of events, programs, and professional development as part of the STEM certification process.

There will be a variety of activities for students during the school day on Wednesday, March 26th at McU to celebrate this achievement including a Gold Medal Science Fair, an Atmospheric Science STEM Theater show, a STEM career speech by meteorologist and MIT graduate, Andrew Humphrey, and the presentation of the STEM Certificate.

There will also be a Family Fun Science Night from 4:00 to 6:00 PM that evening.
