Kim Collins, an innovative STEM class teacher (9-12), began a hydroponics project with her students in the fall of 2022 with grants from Tennessee Valley Authority, Tennessee STEM Innovation Network (TSIN), Battelle (a non-profit company and the Franklin County Educational Foundation for Excellence. Currently, her STEM students are growing and selling lettuce and microgreens supplying Winchester’s Filo’s Tavern. They also supply their Teachers and staff with plenty of leafy greens. Mrs. Collins says a future goal includes increasing production so as to provide their cafeteria with all its greens.

Students learning the Ukelale
Huntland School’s Music Teacher, Paul Bischoff, received a grant from the FC Educational Foundation for Excellence to purchase kits for building Ukuleles. This unit of study combined the skills of their high school STEM classes with the skills of elementary music students. This collaborative learning opportunity provided all students involved with a hands-on and rewarding experience while contributing to both their STEM and music knowledge base. Congratulations on your Success Story!
