The following is an unofficial summary of the meeting.
At the start of the meeting the school board recognized students Addie Foote and Claire Abbott who won 2nd place in Project Green Challenge, an international sustainability competition. Claire and Addie spearheaded two efforts: the first: to advocate for Stillwater High School to transform into a greener, solar producing high school, and the second: to educate students on energy consumption and conservation.
The board also recognized a group of students from Stillwater Area High School who placed 2nd in an international engineering competition put on by NASA. Teams from around the world participated in the 27th annual Human Exploration Rover Challenge (HERC). They spent eight months designing, building and testing a human-powered rover on a course that simulates the terrain found on rocky bodies in the solar system.
