Slauson Students Launch into the Future
Seventh and eighth graders from Slauson School participated in the VIVA Technology Program which encourages students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

The event included a parent night that included a hands-on project and information about required high school classes needed to major in STEM fields.
