The SCILS Region 8 LaSTEM Center traveled to Jonesboro to provide a STEM station for the Jackson Parish 4-H Achievement Day activities. Groups of students rotated through the SCILS session where they engaged in an engineering design challenge to build the longest free-extending cantilever arm using only paint stirrers and washers.
The Region 8 LaSTEM Center – SCILS for short – is a group of partners across north Louisiana focused on meeting the critical need for science, technology, engineering, and math learning and job skills in our region.
“What fun to see these outstanding and dedicated young leaders collaborate and conquer the challenge while having a great time with the SCILS team. In fact, one team broke the SCILS record!! Thank you for including us in your end-of-year experience . . . we love our Jackson Parish partners! 4-H + STEM = SUCCESS!!”
