KATV has a video and nice article on the amazing job that students in the Scott Charter School’s STEM program did in creating an astronomy museum.

Schools across the country are fighting for funding for science, technology, and math programs, but one Arkansas school is proving you don’t need a big budget to teach big concepts.

Dr. Constance Meadors meets with a dozen students an hour a day after classes, as part of Scott Charter School’s STEM program. This year, the group wanted to inspire kids outside the program, so they set about creating a museum. They had no funding – so they built their own equipment and asked for loans from universities.
