All students in the city of Hartford were issued a challenge to create a button for this year’s STEM Expo/ Science Fair.  The design had to tie to this year’s theme: “The Future is in Your Hands.”  Students and teachers were free to create an image in any form that they thought would represent the theme the best.
 
The entries were judged by two different committees at the Office of Curriculum and Instruction. The winning design was be made into a pin that everyone will receive at the 2015 STEM Expo/Science Fair this spring.  Congratulations to this year’s designer, Anika Sharma, a student at Betances STEM Magnet School!!
