Students at Western School of Science and Technology have spent the past month studying biomimicry to determine our next large STEM project. Students created prototypes for a beehive, the dessert spoon, rocks, and trees.

After a few days of working on the prototypes students chose to build the beehive structure. Over 100 students spent a week and a half working to build the beehive play structure that also provides seating for the sports field.

Almost 900 hours of work went into this project and it is a wonderful addition to our campus. Read some of our students’ reflections below:

Teresa Arellano, an 8th grader, “The most important thing I have learned is perseverance, don’t give up, & keep going.”

Community Transformation – Western: CFA March Newsletter

Cielo Escorcia, a freshman, “This is important to me because I am able to express my future architect skills while still a freshman.”

Milton Prado, an 8th grader, “The most important thing I have learned is I like constructing models and I never had the opportunity to do so until I came to Western.”

Briana Pina, a sophomore, “I can’t believe that what I actually worked hard on came to reality.” & Daniel Guzman, a sophomore, “The most important thing I have learned is if I work hard I can make a change.”
