James Hart - STEM - Illinois Legislature - Homewood 2018 (2)Students from James Hart Middle School in Homewood District 153, were celebrated in the Illinois state capitol last week!

Students Aaron Latman, Jessica Lyseng and Ellie Wojcikowski, along with SmartLab Facilitator Cheri Pesina, were invited to present STEM projects at the Tech 2018 Illinois program. 

Latman demonstrated a robotic elephant. Wojcikowski designed a house using CAD software and then printed a 3D model. Lyseng showed off an interactive skeleton she built and programmed to help teach other kids anatomy.

“James Hart stole the show in Springfield with their original technology projects”, said Pesina. “They wowed the legislators that stopped by the booth.”

Representative Thaddeus Jones of Calumet City even recognized the students and their Facilitator on the floor of the Illinois House later that day.
