The Melcher-Dallas School District is thrilled to be a partner in the PEERS program, because it offers our students an opportunity to experience STEM from industry professionals in a manner that students enjoy. Students have a chance to try hands-on activities, ask questions, and interact with engineers, all in a manner that they find engaging. In addition, it provides an opportunity for them to explore different careers and to learn what path the representatives from the different industries have to taken to their rewarding careers. As a teacher, their visits help me to make better connections for real world applications and to help guide students in their post high school career.
