Four Stimson students, representing their Middle School STEAM Club, won an award at the recently held Future City Competition. Stimson's STEAM club worked to design both a virtual and physical city with the goal of participating in the NYC competition on January 21, 2017. After being judged by a team of engineers, the STEAM Club's creation earned the "Most Creative Use of Materials" Award.  This non-profit national competition is sponsored by the engineering community to promote technological literacy and engineering to middle school students.  Students learn how math, science and engineering shape the infrastructure of the city around them. Students also learn life skills such as problem solving, teamwork, research, written and verbal communication, computer literacy, and gain an increased awareness of community related issues.

Congratulations to club members: Thomas Breaton, Angelina Chiquitucto, Stephen Farrell, Lila Freire, Joseph Gurba, Matthew Kerner, Rebecca Kurjanski, Richard Kurjanski, Dalton Marzigliano, Ben Schlansky, Hayley Sahadeo, Aarav Shah, Bryan Unger, Jaden Wedner, and Rafel Azhar.
