Students from Laura Jeffrey Academy visited St. Catherine University on March 2, 2012, for activities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.)

Students learned how ice cream forms in a mini-course entitled "The Chemistry of Ice Cream" and had the opportunity to attend one of seven other mini-courses in the afternoon. The courses included:
• "Leadership"
• "Money! Money!"
• "Think Globally"
• "Candy CSI"
• Human Developmental Psychology"
• "Be the Peace"
• "The Station"

The visit was one of three student visits hosted over a span of two years at St. Catherine University. These visits were made possible by a Community Action Grant from the American Association of University Women (AAUW) that was awarded to the Office of Community Work and Learning to advance STEM initiatives in the St. Paul community.
