The ACE team at Stratford STEM kicked off our year with some team building exercises. We worked together to “cross the Cumberland River”.
We also cracked the code to launch the UFO auto pilot back to earth by lining up in birthday order without using our voices. To embrace the challenges, lines of communication and problem solving strategies were developed between mentors and students. We will use these new found connections to develop an awesome project this year!
