Posted October 22nd, 2014 by Terri McHugh

District 54 Superintendent Andy DuRoss visited Einstein Elementary School in Hanover Park this month to interview students about the new FUSE lab.

Ben Loduha, the District 54 STEM coordinator, explained that FUSE is a program that was developed by Northwestern University with a gaming structure, which means as students complete one level they can move up to the next level in a given challenge. The various challenges include electronic circuitry, robotics, 3D design and printing and many more related to the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math).

FUSE is also available at all five junior high schools, Lincoln Prairie, Hoover, Nerge, Aldrin and Armstrong.
