Congratulations STEM Club

HCSM STEM Club traveled to Birmingham this week to compete in the Alabama Technology Student Association Conference. This is our 4th year attending, and our best yet!

Nine students entered 10 competitions, with 15-20 other middle school teams competing against them in the most popular events. For the first time, every competitor won at least one award. We earned 6 finalist medals:

  • Children's Stories: 5th place (Lilli Buchanan and Michael Ivan)
  • Digital Photography: 1st place (Ava Capolupo) and 2nd place (Madeline Teer)
  • Forensic Science: 4th place (Jaiden Tipton and Ava Capolupo)
  • Off the Grid: 3rd Place (Abigail Smith and Lilli Buchanan)
  • Technology Bowl: 3rd Place (Shawn Langseth, DJ Fisher, Abigail Smith)
  • Video Game Design: 8th place (Connor Capolupo, DJ Fisher, Michael Ivan, Shawn Langseth)

We are also proud of our first-ever candidate for Alabama TSA Middle School Vice President, Shawn Langseth. Although he did not win the election this time, he ran an excellent campaign and helped pave the way for next year's candidates!
