The Lewis Cass Junior High STEM Program is continuing to develop strong connections with community partners.  See below for information about community partners for each grade level.

Having cooperative relationships with these supports can complement and reinforce the values, culture and learning opportunities we can provide for our junior high students.  Gaining real world insight and professional input would be invaluable to our STEM program. These contributions can include but are not limited to monetary donations, providing new or used materials for projects/activities, sponsoring student field trips, or sharing expertise and knowledge about given topics, participating in career fair events, or offering job-shadowing opportunities.
