Jackson Independent School has a very successful year implementing Community Problem Solving Projects. One group of 4th graders decided a Community Problem they wanted to pay attention to was the lack of STEM learning activities available for students in Appalachia, particularly Appalachian Girls. They formed a group, the Appalachian STEMS that met once a week to learn about a new STEM acitivity they could teach and then they would teach it to younger girls to help grow their interest and confidence in STEM. They had a successful program that has now been picked up as sessions during the Afterschool and summer camp program. This group presented at the ARI Fire Summit and hopes to continue being problem solvers in our community!
