Student Participates in Summer STEM Program, Meets World Acclaimed Inventors, Scientists

While most students spend their summer lounging by the pool, junior Rhiannon Roberts spends hers at the National Academy of Future Science and Technology Leaders conference in Boston, Massachusetts.
“I got a letter in the mail from the academy inviting me and that was the first time I had ever heard of them,” Roberts said. “My mom and I did some research and decided on a payment plan.”
Roberts has now attended the conference twice.
“I got invited the beginning of my freshman year and went that summer,” Roberts said. “Then I got invited back as an alumna this past summer.”
