    WeatherSTEM donated weather-collecting instruments for our school on Thursday, May 5th, 2016. WeatherSTEM CEO, Ed Mansouri demonstrated how the equipment works to students, faculty, and staff. This state-of-the-art system provides students with data on weather conditions and it is quite beneficial to our math and science curriculum. We are so excited about this generous donation and the great lessons to be learned by our students, faculty, and staff.
