Swanson Primary Center, like some 70 other Michiana K-12 schools, has been an active collaborator in Michiana STEM education. At least five teachers from Swanson have attended NDeRC events.

Kudos to this South Bend Community School Corporation school for their efforts to reach out to university partners.
