I appreciate all of the positive feedback I have received from people all over the United States regarding my indoor miniature golf course STEM project that I designed with my students. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the project.

My students and I built an indoor glow-in-the-dark miniature golf course at our school. They had to use math, apply problem solving skills, and collaborate. It was a fun and very beneficial activity for them. Here’s a recent article in Inside Golf newspaper about our STEM project.
