CAD/CAM lab hosts USD 259 Summer STEM Academy students

NCAT and NIAR FieldTripThank you so much for the incredible experience you provided for our Summer STEM Academy Extension students.  We had such a great visit at the Reverse Engineering Lab, 3D printing room and the Robotics Lab. The kids were really engaged and the staff and students there worked so well with the kids. They were all so welcoming and friendly. Our visit to the VR Cave was amazing, too!  We really feel fortunate to have gotten to be among the few who have gotten to visit. Again, the staff and students there at NIAR, worked so well with our kids.  I have attached a collage of pictures from our day.

We are grateful for the time you took to arrange this visit and everything you did to provide such a great experience for our group.  Please pass along our sincerest thank you and great job to all of our tour guides and educators!
