During the 2014-2015 school year we sponsored two after school S.T.E.A.M. programs: Gardening Club and Technology Club.

The Gardening Club provides students with hands on activities that beautify the Earth and use our natural resources in a positive manner.  They also spearheaded school wide community events such as the RBA Clean Up Day and Earth Day parade.

The Technology Club provides students with hands on activities using various technology devices such as desktop computers, digital cameras and iPads.  Students created Power Point presentations, school posters, Rube Goldberg contraption videos and iMovie trailers.
