Norwin Middle School to offer STEM camp for girls

Wednesday, Aug. 28, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Norwin Middle School will be offering a camp designed to build on science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, skills for girls this September.

The camp, “STEMettes Camp for Girls,” will teach middle school girls about STEM education and teamwork.

The $65 camp is limited to the first 12 girls who register.

Materials for the camp were funded through a grant by the Female Alliance STEM Excellence Center, which is affiliated with the Penn State Electro-Optics Center.

The camp runs from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays — Sept. 14, Sept. 21, Sept. 28 and Oct. 5. Registration forms are available online at, under the “Academics” and “STEM Education” tabs.

Trip approved

The Norwin School Board approved a trip to Walt Disney World in Florida for about 60 high school students, two teachers and adequate adult chaperones.

School directors Thomas Sturm and Barb Viola cast the only two dissenting votes.

The trip will be for show choir and theater club members. It will take place Jan. 1 through 5.

Teachers Lauren McCurdy and Bridget Faulk will chaperone the trip.
