The San Manuel High School CTE department worked long and hard to present a hand-made chicken coop to the Mammoth Elementary STEM School students on Friday, Jan. 17, 2014. Arriving around 9:30 a.m., with the help of the Mammoth-San Manuel School District Maintenance Department, a 72 square foot chicken coop painted barn red was delivered to the school.

The project was part of Pima County Joint Technical Education District (JTED). Under the direction of Gary Faulkenberry; Francisco Gallardo, Megan Monks, Clay Redden, Randy Verdugo, Jacob Gonzales, Frankie Tamayo, Francisco Barragan, Mathew Carbajal, Devin DeGood, Angela Earel, Matt Encinas, Isaiah Franco, Jesus Gastelum, Seth Goff, Julissa Gonzalez, Dustin Riley, Cierra Rodriguez, William Schifferns, Jared Tippetts and Alexus Valenzuela completed this project in just under a year’s worth of time.

The chicken coop houses seven chickens and one duck. The students are able to look into the windows and observe the natural habits of chickens as well as the life cycle of chicken first hand. The Mammoth Elementary STEM School teachers want to provide a real life experience for the students. “This was an awesome opportunity for teachers to integrate STEM concepts with hands on, fun learning,” said Julie Formo, kindergarten teacher. “Plus, it was great way to bring all of our students together, from the little kids to the big kids.” Principal Melissa Joliat said,“It was fantastic to see everyone working together in our school community.”
