For the seventh year in a row, Deer Creek Middle School’s STEM students went to the Future City National Competition in Washington, D.C.
The 11-member Science, Technology, Engineering and Math team won first place in the Great Plains Regional on Jan. 26 in Manhattan, Kan., and went to D.C. over Presidents Day Weekend to compete against the winners of 36 other regions. At the Washington competition, the Deer Creek STEM team won a special award for Best Fire Protection Plan.
