After successfully competing in regional and state level STEM-related events this school year, six Mountlake Terrace High School students have qualified to attend the 2014 Technology Student Association (TSA) National Conference to be held June 26 – July 1 in Washington, D.C.

The six MTHS students, all sophomores, heading to the nation’s capital for the national conference are Kathleen Cram, AsiaLee Donnelly, Connor Ebright, Haeley Johnston, Paxtyn Merten and Jonathan Theim.

To raise money for the trip, students will be holding a STEM Saturday, May 17, for 4th, 5th and 6th graders at Mountlake Terrace High School. Participating elementary-age students will be led in STEM-related challenges and activities. There will be two sessions for students: 9 a.m.-noon or 1-4 p.m.; cost is $50, which will cover all supplies and snacks.

For more information, or to sign up for STEM Saturday, contact Sandy Merten at 206-498-4977 or Elizabeth Donnelly at 425-350-0167. Registration can also be done by email at mths.tsa@gmail.com.

Donations to help fund the MTHS students trip to the TSA National Conference can be made at the GoFundME website.

TSA is the largest STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) student leadership organization in the state of Washington.
