 STEM EDUCATION TOPIC OF FORUM

The League of Women Voters of the Lima Area and the American Association of University Women hosted a forum on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Education on April 18.  STEM is a fun, hands-on learning environment designed to spark student innovation.   Linda Haycock, 1st District Board of Education Member, summarized STEM and Laurie Laird, Ohio Northern University and Dr. Swathi Mohan of The Ohio State University in Lima shared ways the universities  are training teachers to use STEM and how their outreach to students was generating an interest in STEM among students in the area.
At the annual meeting on May 23, the Board will recommend a program for 2017-2018 that deals exclusively with education.  Topics will include Alternative Education, Charter Schools, online schools, and funding of education. 
 



May Primary Voter Information

Due to the small number of contested races and candidates represented in the Primary Election, the Board of Directors of the League of Women Voters of the Lima Area voted to not publish a printed Voter Guide.  A guide will be printed for the fall General Election.  We have asked candidates for Lima City Mayor and Fourth Ward Council to respond to a question; their answers can be accessed at www.vote411.org. Access the site and input your address to get your ballot. information. If you do not live in the city and wish to read the candidates' responses, you must input a  Lima City address.  To read responses from Fourth Ward Candidates, you must input an address from that ward 

After years of hard work by the League of Women Voters and other groups throughout the state, the REDISTRICTING ISSUE PASSED in the state of Ohio.  In 2021  A nonpartisan commission will be able to draw district lines to eliminate partisan gerrymandering. 


Now we will join the next challenge of extending this fair redistricting to the US congress.  Won't you join us?
