Thanks to a grant through the Cherokee Preservation Foundation, Macon County students and teachers are able to host STEM-E clubs in our schools. Macon County currently has STEM-E clubs at Nantahala School, Franklin High School, Macon Early College, Macon Middle School, Mountain View Intermediate School, South Macon Elementary School, East Franklin Elementary School and Iotla Elementary School.
Students are encouraged to work on projects near and dear to their hearts! Mountain View students raised money for the no-kill animals shelter in Macon County and helped create a scholarship fund for MVI students to attend the Washington DC field trip. Franklin High School students have worked with local land owners to create a signal relay system for their driveway, created new app ideas to serve the school community with needed clothing and have created a new app idea to use virtual reality to take the learner back to the time of the Cherokee in our community.
The 2018-2019 grant cycle has been approved and our students participated in their Fall STEM-E conferences in Sept./Oct. We look forward to seeing and hearing about their ideas!
