Math teacher Stacy Hinz confers with Andrew Kotz, 13, (left) and Isaiah Williams, 10, on the design of their “eggstronaut” landing craft during STEM Summer Camp at East Ridge High School. The weeklong workshop gave students the chance to apply the principles of math, physics and science in the construction of miniature rockets, bridges and catapults.
