Struthers Middle School

Eighth Graders Took on the Shark Tank

Struthers 8th Graders Presenting their STEM Shark Tank Project

The "Shark Tank" has once again returned to Struthers Middle School. During the event, select group of 8th grade students competed at the “Wildcat Cage,” in front of a panel of judges.

This year’s judges included: Dr. Ron Iarussi, MCESC Superintendent, Dave Vecchione, SMS Principal, Phil Latessa, SCS Director of School Improvement, and Peg Flynn, Green Team Educator.

Students in the middle school had been working on a cross curricular STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) project on Sustainability. Each group took of the responsibility of ‘Culinary Artists’ who have recently purchased a farm-to-table restaurant in an assigned location.

Principal Vecchione commented, “Our 8th grade students worked collaboratively on a STEM project that incorporates 21st century skills. The entire staff at SMS are very proud of these efforts and looked forward to watching their final presentations during our school's version of Shark Tank.”

The project included students in language arts, social studies, math, visual arts and more. The overall goal of the project was to research soil types in a region and create a restaurant.
