Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee toured Nautilus K-8 classrooms, April 13, to learn more about Federal Way Public Schools science, technology, engineering and math opportunities and hear the district’s vision to create a K-12 STEM region.

Inslee and Superintendent Tammy Campbell discussed the district’s expansion of STEM offerings, such as robotics learning opportunities for all elementary schools in the next two years.

Inslee visited multiple classrooms at Nautilus K-8, including Dan Haegele’s seventh-grade science classroom, where students learning about LEGO robotics were utilizing coding knowledge to operate the movements of robots.

The governor surprised Haegele with the honor of “Washingtonian of the Day” for his extreme creativity in project-based learning.

In Elizabeth Borgmann’s classroom, Inslee listened as first-grade scholars showed him their current projects, which included an egg-basket zipline and a pull-cart with eggs in place of traditional wheels.
