STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. It is a huge initiative in the United States designed to bring these topics into the spotlight for students of all ages. Millions of dollars have been granted to schools across the country to fund clubs and programs designed to spark student interest in these fields. KMES has one of these clubs that will compete in the STEM Robotics Challenge at the Pavilion on June 12, 2015. This year, there are 12 fourth and fifth grade students building robots to represent KMES in the competition.
