Governor Scott Walker, a big supporter of STEM educational programs, visited Shoreland Lutheran High School’s STEM labs on March 28, 2018. STEM is a special curriculum offered at Shoreland in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.
The afternoon program began with a piano and violin duet followed by members of student council and honor students asking Governor Walker questions about school safety and Walker’s new $100 million School Safety Plan. The plan funds new grant programs for security upgrades to school buildings and creates the Office of School Safety within the Department of Justice. Students presented actions that have been taken to improve school safety at Shoreland as a result of a student town hall event.
Governor Walker, officials of the Village of Somers, and guests, were given a tour of classrooms where students learn concepts and then apply them to solve hands-on problems in the lab. Walker engaged with the students as they told him about their projects and demonstrated how they were achieving their goals. Concluding the event, guests enjoyed refreshments and views of concept drawings for a master future growth plan for Shoreland Lutheran High School. New areas include classrooms, auditorium, physical education/sports areas and administrative offices.
