General Info

This is a special project between the Lamar County School District’s EXCEL program and the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science to provide all students in the gifted education program (grades 2-6) to career awareness and robotics through STEM. Teachers will register their classes to participate at the location designated for their school. Three different sessions are being organized over the two day period.

Each participant must bring a sack lunch and snack. No charge for the event.
