TODAY’S PROGRAM

 

Randy Winter has invited Amanda Flannery, who is the STEM Scout Executive for the Samoset Council. STEM Scouts in the Samoset Council is one of just a handful of pilot programs throughout the United States. STEM is short for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math. Amanda will share information on why Samoset Council was chosen to be a pilot, and will also do an experiment.

It is asked that members get their speaker information to Sheryl Hemp as soon as possible.
