On behalf of the Administration at Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School, we are ecstatic to announce the fourth annual STEM for Girls Event (Science Technology Engineering & Math), organized by a team of STEM empowered teachers and students from CPRSS. This coincides with International Woman’s Day to celebrate the contributions of women in STEM.
Mr. Christopher Sarkonak and their team, led by CPRSS Grade 12 student organizer Faith Kasprick, are very thrilled to be leading the charge of a week-long event featuring five presentations by various teachers at Crocus in their respective STEM areas.
“It’s an incredibly exciting opportunity for our students and school, and for women in Science/STEM.” – Mr. Christopher Sarkonak.
