Is your school hosting a career day?
Is your school hosting a science night?
Does your school host a science/STEM fair?
Do you have some other STEM-related event that you host?
If so, I would really like to hear from you!
I am trying to understand what events are currently occurring throughout Idaho schools in order to understand how to share (and potentially scale up) some of these “STEMazing” activities.
If you could please send me information, a link or a contact name, I will take it from there.
Thank you for your support of STEM!

Tip for Healthy Living
Why should I exercise?
Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Exercise prevents health problems, builds strength, gives you more energy, and can help you reduce stress. It can also help you maintain a healthy body weight and curb your appetite.
What are the benefits of exercise?
Adding exercise to your routine can positively affect your life. Exercise can:
- Reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, diabetes, and obesity
- Keep joints, tendons, and ligaments flexible, which makes it easier to move around and decreases the chance of falling
- Reduce some of the effects of aging, especially the discomfort of osteoarthritis
- Contribute to mental well-being and help treat depression
- Help relieve stress and anxiety
- Increase energy and endurance
- Improve sleep
- Help maintain a normal weight by increasing your metabolism (the rate you burn calories)
