Thanking Mr. Nemmers

St. Mary’s School dedicated their newly refurbished middle school science room September 19 and announced they will be continuing their dedication to high quality STEM education with an upcoming renovation of the high school facilities.

Due to the generosity of Joe Nemmers in the name of his late wife, the Kathy Christenson ’73 Nemmers Science Room provides students with all new flooring, spacious cabinetry, sinks, new plumbing, expanded electrical capacity, air conditioning, new eyewash station and modern lighting. Also, the room has been equipped with new laptops for each student, and a Bluetooth-enabled ceiling mount projector, which is  wirelessly accessible from each student device.

Thanking Mr. NemmersThanks to a matching fundraising challenge courtesy of Nemmers, the room will soon be equipped with the latest in pocket labs, electronic probes that record results onto their laptops, STEM kits, mini-refrigerator and freezer for experiments – all to keep students engaged and excited about learning and science, technology engineering and math.

Nemmers challenged the school to raise $100,000 for STEM education and he would match it with $100,000, which was met a few weeks ago. Students in grades preK-12 will soon be enjoying new computers and Chromebooks as well as new server equipment and printers with the generosity of Nemmers and the donors to the challenge grant.

            The high school science facilities will be renovated in the summer of 2018 when class is not in session and will be named for Bernard ’40 and June Christenson, parents of Kathy and her siblings.
