Optimists Keep STEM Boat Building Afloat at Farmington View Elementary

January 13, 2020 - Special thanks to Monte Akers and the Hillsboro Optimists Club for their generous $2,000 donation for STEM boat building at Farmington View Elementary School. Students will be busy this spring using their math, science and engineering skills to build a boat in coordination with the Wind & Oar Program. The boat will be launched in May at Tualatin River Farms as part of the water safety program offered by the Tualatin Riverkeepers.
