• STEM Clubs

    After school STEM clubs are a great way to extend and enrich your experience at Hanes.  We offer a variety of STEM Clubs that are available to all students in grades 6-8.  Some are competitive and meet weekly while others meet less frequently.  If your child is interested in participating in an after school STEM Club you may contact the coach directly.  See below for our STEM Club overviews.
