Conaky's Quilts
Veronica Mays learned the art of quilting in 2004 while living in Fairbanks, Alaska: Although I resisted the idea of moving to the 49th state, I set two goals: to complete my teaching certification/Master’s degree and learn to quilt. I have no regrets about living in Alaska and the experiences I had being there for three years. I appreciate the mentors that have shown me the way. Now, my Mom loves to quilt with me!

Shark Transportation
As part of the Animal Allies research project for FIRST LEGO League (FLL), our team of all girls discovered how sharks are transported by airplanes to different parts of the world. For a variety of reasons, many sharks do not survive the traumatic experience. It is our teams solution to redesign a catamaran cargo ship to include an open enclosed area between the two hulls to allow the Sharks to remain in a natural habitat while being transported. We produced a 3D-printed model of our idea.
