Photo submitted Thirty-six Cedaredge High School students visited Del-Mont Consultants to see how STEM education -- science, technology, engineering and math -- is applied in the real world.

It was a cold morning, but 36 students from Chris Cannell's STEM class at Cedaredge High School took turns going through the four stations that Del-Mont Consultants had set up at its office in Montrose in anticipation of this day. Two of those stations were outside.

At station one, students learned how the firm's drone has become an integral part of business.

Station two focused on surveying and robotics, station three was all about civil engineering and station four dealt with CAD design and the future.

Each station was approximately 30 minutes long with questions and answers at the end.

At the end of the day everyone went back out in the cold to take one last picture of the class, teachers and Del-Mont Consultant participants.

"The students were some of the best behaved teenagers I have been around in quite some time," said Diana DeGraw, the administrative assistant at Del-Mont Consultants. "I commend their teachers for wanting their kids to see how the STEM program works in the outside world.

"Being a resident of Delta County I was proud that these were our kids and my company coming together for a great day of learning and I thought the community should know about it!"
