STEM Club members attended a variety of workshops and seminars and also spent time touring monuments, museums and other historical sites in the nation’s capital.

The STEM Club hosted star-gazing shows throughout the year to help offset the cost of the trip. Additional funding came from NPCC’s Student Senate organization.
