Committee Chair: Amanda Walworth
The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) committee is new to Livonia PTSA Council in 2015. Our first project was a Maker Camp in the summer of 2016 for Middle School students. If you would like more information on the STEM committee, or if you would like to participate, please contact Committee Chair Amanda Walworth.
2016 STEM Camp was a success!
