STEM is an academic approach that brings real-world lessons to students as they apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics when making connections between their school and the community.
“To commemorate this celebration, we are honored to welcome Miss Tennessee to a special event at Ashland City Elementary on August 20,” said Beth Batson, the district’s student services supervisor.
According to Batson, Miss Tennessee (Hannah Robison) is a chemistry major, which will fit nicely into this celebration of women in STEM.
“When thinking about careers in science, technology, engineering and math, we often overlook the accomplishments of many wonderful women in our recent history,” said Batson.
Organizers said the event will also feature Kristin McQueen, the new STEM teacher at Ashland City Elementary.
This community event will be Thursday, August 20 at 6:00 p.m. in the Ashland City Elementary gymnasium at 108 Elizabeth Street in Ashland City.
