Hillsboro middle school students find STEM camp engaging, fun

Photos and Story by | Start the discussion

Thirty students from the Hillsboro School District spent July 21 at the Rock Creek Campus STEAM Lab engaged in science and engineering workshops.

Sponsored by the Intel Corporation and Rock Creek, the camp is organized by the school district in collaboration with the Si Se Puede organization in Washington County. Its aim is to create opportunities in STEM-related fields for bilingual, underrepresented minority youth in Washington County.

In the STEAM Lab, students viewed tiny creatures with microscope lenses and volunteers donned the clean room “bunny suit,” with the group learning how water transforms itself when found in a vacuum.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
