Chestnut Oaks Middle School’s 7th grade students participated in the SC Guard Air and Ground Expo STEM Day at McEntire Joint National Guard Base. Ninety students had the opportunity to experience science and engineering up-close through simulators, robotics demonstrations, aerial performances, and aircraft/ground vehicle tours. Standards-based exhibits focused on Physical Science, Environmental Science, Math, Robotics, Engineering, Aerospace Technology, and Biology. Many students were motivated to pursue STEM careers in the future as a result of this experience!
