Do you know your geography?
Congratulations to STEM 8th grader Aidric Peterson and 6th grader Hayden Gotto for finishing at the top of the field for the Geography Spelling Bee! Peterson walked away as champion and Gotto as runner-up.
Here were the three Championship Round questions:
1. St. Louis is nicknamed “The Gateway to the West” and famously served as the departure city for Lewis & Clark’s expedition in 1804, reaching the Pacific Ocean the next year. St. Louis became a large city in America’s Old West because of its strategic location at the confluence of two major American rivers. Name both rivers.
2. The European Union, or EU, administers from several different cities. Its Court of Justice is located in Luxembourg City, the Parliament meets in Strasbourg near the German border, and the central bank is in Frankfurt-am-Main, but the informal capital of the EU is found in what city, also known for being the international headquarters of NATO?
3. Strangely enough, the largest city in Africa is not a national capital. Expanded by the British Empire in the 1800s, its home country moved their capital to Abuja in 1991. Its metro area is estimated to contain around 30 million inhabitants. Name this city.
The answers:
1) Missouri and Mississippi
2) Brussels
3) Lago
Great job to all of the competitors. This is knowledge that will pay off!

STEM Seniors get payback after staff prank about Saturday school

Nice one!  STEM Seniors were sure to get some payback after getting pranked recently by STEM staff about going to school on Saturdays due to a scheduling mistake.  Their form of payback came by putting several school items out of order, even placing them outside.  They were hard at work one particular week night to make all of this happen and they were just as hard at work to clean it all up!  Way to go class of 2023.  Your prank was creative and hilarious!
