Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars), is the premier science and engineering competition for middle school students.
Society affiliated science fairs around the country nominate the top 10% of 6th, 7th and 8th grade participants to enter this prestigious competition. After submitting the online application, 300 top projects are selected and 30 finalists present their research projects and compete in team hands-on STEM challenges to demonstrate their skills in critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity.
The Spanish Fork American Legion Post 68 hosted the second annual Freedom Walk at the Spanish Fork Sports Park on May 8 and 9. Members from each of the branches of military were represented and told stories to nearly 1,250 fifth-graders from 13 schools during the two-day event.
Prior to the walk, each student either interviewed or researched a veteran and wrote a summary of what they learned. One-page summaries and photos of these veterans, many of which are family members, were attached to banners, creating a Wall of Honor which lined the walking route.
