How Did the Students in Dawn Foland's Pathway to Success Program Do it?
Students cut the bottom off of water bottles, then they painted the inside of the bottles. When the paint dried, they cut the bottles to make them spiral. The teacher took embroidery thread and wrapped a wooden embroidery hoop.  They placed each cut bottle on the hoop with embroidery thread.  They measured how long the thread needed to be for each color. The last bottles they put on were the blue bottles on the outside of the sculpture.  Each color hangs a little lower and has fewer of that color. The sculpture is 7' long.

Attention Business and Community Leaders
 Allen, Mercer, and surrounding counties are seeking to join a statewide initiative of connected STEM Learning Ecosystems (SLEs). Mercer and Allen County ESCs are submitting an application for a new West Central Ohio Ecosystem to represent area schools build connections among K-12, higher education, post-secondary education, business and industry, government, out-of-school time providers, philanthropy and others to create meaningful learning experiences for students that connect to Ohio's workforce needs of today and tomorrow!
There are currently 5 STEM Learning Ecosystems across the state with a maximum of 7 additional
proposals selected through the application process. Currently there are no ecosystems in Northwest Ohio.STEM education is about so much more than the disciplines and content. The goal of STEM is to foster intellectual, entrepreneurial, and technical talent through design thinking. Read more about
You are invited to a stakeholder meeting of education, community, and business representatives where we will discuss the needs in our area and plans for the future.
