Asmi and Mishika’s TSA Achievements

Asmi and Mishika were MS Chapter Officers for STEM School Highlands Ranch. They are the only females on their team, Mishika serving as Chapter President, and Asmi serving as Chapter Secretary. After months of hard work, the officer team competed for Chapter Team, which focuses on parliamentary procedure. The team won 1st Place in the State Competition, and 4th place and the National Finalist Award at Nationals.

Sarah and George the Robot

In April I competed in NRL (National Robotics League) which is a battlebot competition where students from all over the state bring robots to fight 1 on 1 with each other in a sealed cage. This year my partner and I won undefeated. I was one of 5 girls in the competition and we were the smallest team, not only that but we had the least time to prepare. Our robot, George (named by Asmi) was the crowd favorite, likely because of the laser engraved smiley face on his frame. :)

Lucia’s Lacrosse

I’ve been playing lacrosse for about 6 years now and it’s become one of my favorite things in life. I play for a club team called Summit and play for my high school team, Castle View, where I was fortunate enough to make Varsity as a freshman.

Katie’s Music

The Premier Recital is a recital played by students who auditioned for it. I, along with many other students, managed to get into the recital. The songs for the recital were chosen by the staff of Avanti, which is the music school that does the Premier. The auditions for the Premier are usually a few months before the actual show. If we get in, we have time to practice. After a couple months, students play at 3 rehearsals (one being the dress rehearsal). After the dress rehearsal, the show is 1-2 days after. The students perform, and parents/spectators watch. The most important part is that the people enjoy it.

Shreya’s Lockheed Martin AR Internship

Shreya worked with Lockheed Martin’s Collaborative Human Immersive Lab (CHIL) and collaborated with the Microsoft HoloLens 2 to understand and learn about the emerging AR world and gather insight into the industry through hands-on experience. With the help of their expertise, she learned about applications such as TwinWorld and HoloLight that enable the development of technology in the AR world.

Women of Excellence

Kathy Hochul

Kathy Hochul is an American lawyer and politician. She is serving as the 57th governor of New York and the first female governor of New York as well as the first governor from upstate New York since the 1930s. “As Lieutenant Governor, she championed the ‘Enough is Enough’ law to prevent sexual assault on college campuses, spearheaded the State’s Paid Family Leave program, and worked to eliminate the gender wage gap, expand access to affordable child care, and combat sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace and beyond.”


Nemonte Nenquimo

Nemonte Nenquimo is an Indigenous Waorani woman who works to defend her homeland from being torn down. She was the first president of CONCONAWEP, the Waorani organization of Pastaza province. She also co-founded Ceibo Alliance, dedicated to protecting the land from resource extraction. “Nemonte led her people in an historic legal victory against the Ecuadorian government, which protected half-a million acres of primary rainforest in the Amazon and set a precedent for Indigenous rights across the region.”

“Climate change is caused by humans on this planet. The jungle does not expect us to save it, it just expects us to respect it. We, the indigenous peoples, expect the same thing.” – Nemonte Nenquimo

“When it comes to making decisions, the women pull no punches, and everyone listens up” – Nemonte Nenquimo
