Kiel Middle School STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Club recently received a grant from the Wisconsin Public Service Foundation. The $510 grant was applied for by Middle School Principal Dr. Deborah Sixel to support the combined clubs also known as The Raspberry Pi Girls, named after a tiny programmable computer, and the SWAT (Students Working to Advance Technology) boys. The primary goal of the clubs is to build student leaders in the STEM areas and to provide opportunities for students to pursue interests in STEM. The students do coding, explore technology projects, build robots, and more. The WPS grant will allow the students to purchase drones to learn how to program and fly the drones. Students will later share their knowledge with elementary students. Club members with advisors Portia Kalinka and Jen Garty include Mykayla Bell, Ally Markum, August Curry, Dominick Sheets, Marshall Brawn, Paige Wilkens, Carson Woods, Aaron Stephany, and Jack Kraemer.
