Marshalltown High School has been promoting its thriving science program for some time, but thanks to the estate of Verle and Ellen Hunt, they are able to grow stronger and promote itself even further according to Addiy Phomvisay. "It was a perfect segway to what we've been planning all along,"Phomvisay said.
Phomvisay says they have a full roster of students ready to show-off what they have been working on. Things seems to have fallen into place for the high school to promote their Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) program. "What this has turned into," Phomvisay says," was originally a plan for a ribbon cutting for the innovation labs." And it has grown further than a simple ribbon cutting, including a visit from Governor Terry Branstad, on the night of the open house.
While the Governor might be in attendance, there is one group Phomvisay says they really want as their target audience. Phomvisay says that everyone is invited, "but especially the young ones to come out and experience and see the high school and interact with experts in the field."
The STEM Carnival will be held on November 18 from 5:00 until 8:00 at Marshalltown High School. The official ribbon cutting will take place at 5:00 with the Governor.
