District 429 STEAM Tour

Tim Johnson, OSF, Tom Hinz, CAT and Cat were invited by District 429 Superintendent, Brian Dukes, to take a tour of the STEAM classrooms this week. It was an amazing time and we were quite impressed with the evolution of education and how up-to-date the district is with the technology they are using, but also in the way things are being taught. It was a great tour and we encourage anyone who would like to see for yourself, to contact the school and take this great tour. Special thanks to Brian and his staff for taking this time with us. Us “grown-ups” learned more than a thing or two.
