June 8th was our 1st Annual STEM Education Night presented by MDU Resources! We took on the Thunder Bay Border Cats. MDU Resources hosted a STEM Expo. At the expo, students visited different booths to learn about what a particular company/business does and how it involves STEM in any particular way! Stay tuned for our 2nd Annual STEM Education Night presented by MDU Resources in the 2018 season!
