Van Voorhis had a STEMtastic week

The week of April 20th was STEM week at Van Voorhis ES. The opening of the new greenhouse was just one of many activities that took place to help students consider a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math). Eco skits, a water filter competition, a visit from Mr. Science and Career Day rounded out the week.


Check out the fun and frolic of our Derby-themed field day!!
