Welcome Gear Up students,
We have a special "Paying It Forward" theme for this year's STEM camp in honor of the Arrowhead United Way's 125th Anniversary. Your team has been tasked to create a website for your very own fictitious non-profit organization. You will decide how your organization will help your local community or maybe even the world!
Every team will give a final presentation of their website to their class and representatves from the Arrowhead United Way on Thursday, June 23. Outstanding non-profit ideas will receive special recognition.

This project will be a team effort. Each team will have 3 to 5 members with the following roles:
