Way to go, !
HKMS students not only took home the first and second place awards at the Army's Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Competition for Connecticut, but they're regional finalists in the national competition, too, HKMS announced.
Students Stanley Chrzanowski, Connor Agro, Troy Early and Parker Rogers took home the first place award, winning $500 each, and were named national finalists, the announcement says. Sawyer Platt, Julianna Rushford and Emily St. Lawrence took second place, and won $250 each.
“By putting technology in the hands of students while challenging them with engaging hands-on, minds-on projects that are flexible and open-ended, students are inspired to learn," team advisor and HKMS media center director Linda Valley said in the announcement.
"By supporting them with an academically-linked curriculum that guides learning while offering opportunities to explore topics that directly affect our surrounding community, students think critically and develop 21st century skills that are needed in our global society."
