During spring term, the STEM Leaders went on a retreat to Silver Falls State Park. We spent a few hours hiking past breathtaking waterfalls before settling in at the Silver Falls Lodge. When we got to the Lodge, we participated in three workshops that focused on developing skills for effective communication and leadership. We ate delicious buffet-style meals and gathered around a campfire to play campfire games and eat delicious roasted marshmallows. With the day finished, we all turned in for the night in cozy log cabins. The retreat was indeed a trip the STEM Leaders won’t easily forget.
