Collierville Reads: All A-Bot STEM

Even in small towns or suburbs, you get assignments that are pretty freakin' cool. Sat. Sept 12th, Collierville Reads hosted "All A-Bot STEM" at the Collierville Library. The event was inspired by this year's reading selection, "Spare Parts", by Joshua Davis, and was an opportunity for younger children to receive hands-on learning from highschool kids involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). 

Activities included building robots, racing homemade cars, and learning basic programming. Photos published in the Collierville Herald.

The Holly Springs Depot

After being on the back-burner for a few months, I finally wrapped up my video about the Holly Springs Depot! I had so much fun putting this little project together, and I learned a lot from editing it (not to mention what I learned about the Depot!). I feel especially grateful to have been given the opportunity to shoot it as a personal project. Big thanks to Gwen Wyatt and Alexandra Ashmead for putting up with my visits!
