Classroom Recap: Seventh grade recently had a virtual guest speaker, NFCS alumni Steven Ung, to talk about his experience at NFCS and Temple University. Students had the chance to see some of his current work, including a Robot Arm that he made and ask him questions. Seventh graders were curious about the clubs he joined while at NFCS and both Steven and teachers encouraged students to try out clubs while in school and to be involved. Thank you Steven!
