SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Fred Crespo, D-Hoffman Estates, met with talented students from Hoffman Estates’ Neil Armstrong Elementary visiting the Capitol for TECH 2018 and discussed how technology is being incorporated into the classroom to enrich students’ learning experience.

“It was a pleasure meeting these talented young people who traveled all the way to our state’s Capitol to showcase their work,” Crespo said. “In order to prepare our young people for the jobs of tomorrow, it is essential that we fully fund education at every level and ensure that every child has access to STEAM programs like the one offered at Neil Armstrong Elementary.”

Crespo met with students at TECH 2018, a statewide initiative that is supported by a broad range of education and business organizations to demonstrate to lawmakers, business leaders and citizens how technology is being used to create more interactive learning environments. The sixth grade students of Neil Armstrong Elementary demonstrated MiniJumbotron which they have been learning about in FUSE Club. FUSE is an educational program that brings interactive STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) learning to schools.
