Saturday Sessions

 The Saturday STEMLit tutorial and enrichment sessions ended on May 18th.  Every other Saturday morning at 10 am, we opened the doors at the Sunrise Apt Complex to begin our Science and Math Tutorial and Enrichment Program. Our college volunteers and professionals were crucial to the success of our Saturday sessions. We learned a lot about plant life and planted our own blooming flowers. During the last session groups of participants presented the findings of their hypothesis. 



Shout out to the Boys and Girls Club of Big Bend for accommodating us.
