Sprague students proudly display their completed projects during an after-school activity designed to engage students, K-5, in the construction of models using LEGOS Robotics funded by WEF to enhance the knowledge of engineering principles.

WEF purchased a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) kit for Doug Brown at WHS. A student uses the kit on cheek cells to separate DNA from other cellular matter in an attempt to amplify a gene that may be linked to "risk-taking."
