Clayton Esposito
Project Information: Each Scout troop is tied to a chartered organization. My troop is tied to St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church (on the corner of 532 and 224). In the back of the property, they had a maintenance barn that had fallen into a state of disrepair. I decided that I would tackle that as my project. After doing my inspection and meeting with the church to see what they wanted to do, I knew it would be a larger-than-normal project. I had to replace one of the smaller walls, add foam on the remaining walls to straighten them up and finally put vinyl siding on the building. It took about 50 hours to complete, and this happened through July and August of 2017.

Age: 18

Plans After Graduation: I have been accepted to West Virginia University in Morgantown. I plan to study Wildlife and Fisheries Resources.

Hobbies/Interests: Hiking, camping, exploring new places, and having fun with my friends

Why did you choose to come to come to STEM?: I chose to come to stem because I had heard great things about it from my mother (she worked at the middle school and the high school), and I knew that I would have many more opportunities in education and after graduation as well.

How had being part of STEM helped you excel as an Eagle Scout?: Having not gone to the middle school, I was not really accustomed to the whole PBL model. Being thrown to the wolves when I got to STEM helped me better tackle my Eagle Scout Project. I was able to find the problem, create possible solutions for it and implement the best one.
