  • District 162 Summer S.T.R.E.A.M Highlights 2023

    Over the summer,  Matteson & Sauk Elementary students participated in the District 162 Summer S.T.R.E.A.M. program.

    Our early innovators grew in developing skills in the areas of science, technology, reading, engineering, arts, and math.

    Some of the S.T.R.E.A.M projects were centered on aviation, coding, robotics, entomology, problem-solving, claymation animation, and much more.

    Take a look at the highlight reel to see the endless fun our Matteson and Sauk Eagles engaged in for this year’s edition of Summer S.T.R.E.A.M!
