Norwin Middle School to offer STEM camp for girls

| Wednesday, Aug. 28, 2013, 9:01 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 norwinsd.org, 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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
