Six rising sophomores, accompanied by Ms. Hannan and Ms. Ruhlman, recently attended Cyber Discovery Camp at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston. During the week-long STEM experience, they learned about coding, robotics, cybersecurity, and ethics surrounding the cyber age through discussions and activities led by college professors. Competing against schools from across the state, the MCA team placed second overall, first in storyline skit, first for two essays, and second for two other essays.

Through Cyber Discovery, campers learn applicable life skills through instruction, self-creativity, and teamwork. "It teaches them so much about how to work in groups, think critically, and overcome challenges together," Ms. Hannan said.

Congratulations to Casey Swanson, Helen Morlier, Marguerite Hopkins, Sophia Hattier, Sadie Thieneman, and Juliet Popham!

“Participation in STEM camps like this one create well-rounded, more confident students, not just in STEM, but in life,” Madi Hannan, a science teacher at Mount Carmel Academy in New Orleans, added. “These camps help them build confidence in themselves.”
