On Friday April 29th we had a great day at the Innovation Center in Longmont for our STEM Jam Session. Students from both BVSD and SVVSD attended and participated in an introductory coding workshop to learn some of the fundamentals of this important STEM skill. Afterward, students heard from a fantastic panel of women who are engineers at Ball Aerospace, including Allison Barto, director, national defense; Sandra Bonilla, mission assurance engineer; and Shannon Peterson, lead manufacturing engineer, national defense program. Thank you Allison, Sandra and Shannon for sharing your career journeys with our students!

Students also toured the Innovation Center and learned about the STEM programs available there.






I was in 6th grade when I participated in STEM E3. I decided to participate because I was interested in learning something new. My experience with STEM E3 was meaningful to me because it gave me an idea of something I might want to do in the future, and it helped me gain confidence and new skills. After participating in STEM E3, I’ve been interested in STEM related activities and I do see myself being in more STEM and computer science related classes in the future. I personally do see myself pursuing a STEM or computer science related career in the future, and I thank STEM E3 for that.
