This Month’s Highlights

Victory Falcons Flying High with C-STEM

Victory Elementary School Integrated C-STEM Training Institute (ICTI) was a great success. It was shared that one of their favorite parts of the training was going through the process as the students will because It allowed them to feel what the students may feel. They also appreciated how at ease we made them feel with the technology and C-STEM’s availability to support them if they ever find that they need to.

Capping off Summer with Robotics

The C-STEM Day camps this summer were so much fun. C-STEM ended the summer with a FREE robotics camp at the East Harris County Empowerment Council.
