    LEADS in the Christmas Spirit!

    The Webster Vienna LEADS program is in the Christmas Spirit! After presenting the LEADS Fall 2019 semester project, students took some time out of their busy studying schedule to build gingerbread houses together. Teams of 3 or 4 had to figure out how to construct the houses, decide together on how to decorate it, and make sure it was stable enough to transport.

    The Cake Tree, a local bakery in the second district, provided all materials and great support and advice through the evening.
