  • Helium blimps, rockets and robots

    STEM instructor James Stuerzenberger is in his first year of overseeing the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program on the Anderson County High School campus, but it’s not his first year of teaching students the art of constructing simple machines.
