Recent STEM Projects Build Bridges to the Community and Globe
In the middle of March, a group of ten students and two staff members took off to Easton, MD to work with the non-profit organization Habitat for Humanity as part of Souhegan’s annual wintercession program for sophomores.
Each year, from kickoff in January to the end of the six week “build season”, teams design, prototype, construct, program, wire, and test their robot. Then, they seal it up until competitions in March and April, with only six hours to make any last minute changes.
Souhegan High School freshman, Kate Eastland, is this year’s high school runner up in The National Writing Project in NH’s writing contest called “One Pen Can Change the World.”
Kira Coleman, a junior at Souhegan High School, and sophomore Lucas Henry were both recently accepted to the New England Young Writers’ Conference at the Bread Loaf Campus of Middlebury College.
Congratulations to the SHS students who were recently inducted into the National Honor Society, the Spanish Honor Society and the French Honor Society.
