Senior Project … Possible STEM Honors Recognition? If your 12th grader’s Senior Project had to do with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), he/she may be eligible for the STEM Honors Recognition. He/she must have a minimum 3.0 GPA, have taken 4 years of Math AND Science, & have done a senior project relating to STEM. The project doesn't have to be directly about STEM, but throughout the process if they dealt with STEM concepts, then they should inform Mrs. Emily Haines-Swatek in K-201, as soon as possible. She will send those who contact her the additional information & essay requirement requirement. The essay deadline is Fri, April 29, 2016.
