    Coronation RCMP investigate a break-in and theft from a local business and utility trailer in the towns of Castor and Coronation 

    Coronation, AB – Coronation RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance with two separate break-ins and thefts that occurred overnight in the towns of Coronation and Castor. At approximately 2:20 a.m., on Saturday, December 22th, 2018 in the town of Castor, AB, a suspect gained entry to an unattended utility trailer by cutting the locks of the trailer’s rear door. Once inside, the suspect stole multiple construction tools. The following tools were stolen: Bostitch 650 Siding Stapler, Bostitch 650 Stapler, Bostitch Framing Nailer, Bostitch Strapshot, Bostitch Brad Nailer and Stapler, Dewalt Compressor, Pasload Stapler and Siding Stapler, 8’ Extension Level and 12’ Step Ladder. Later that same morning, at approximately 2:40 a.m., a suspect accessed a storage unit on the property of the UFA in the town of Coronation by cutting the locks to the main door of the storage unit. The suspect then stole multiple motor vehicle oil containers from inside the storage unit. The following items were stolen from the storage unit: six pails of Shell 18.9L 5W40, two pails of Shell 18.9L 15W40 and 12 jugs of Shell 5L 5W40. Coronation RCMP believe the incidents may be related with a possible suspect vehicle described as a newer model red Ford pick-up truck.

    “Steve is helping to shape Lacombe one child at a time. His energy and drive are matched only by his sincere commitment to helping his students.”
    — President, community environmental association

    Steven Schultz started a robotics program 15 years ago, that has since involved hundreds of students at 10 schools. He shares his project-based approach, and STEM and robotics activities, with teachers and students in schools and orphanages around the world.

    Teaching approach

    A great listener, Steven finds the positive in any situation, encouraging students, regardless of ability, race or gender, to pursue their passions and strengths. Inspired by multiple intelligences theory, he uses project-based learning strategies to help students gain confidence and improve performance.

    In the classroom

    • Goes beyond the curriculum with EcoVision environmental projects—building a tropical greenhouse, establishing a two-acre garden and launching a composting program—that allow students to develop leadership, communication and innovation skills not possible in the classroom.
    • Pioneered a robotics team for young people to learn programming, design, mechanics and electronics skills; has led to considerable interest in STEM subjects in central Alberta.
    • Integrates technology to enhance teaching and learning: computer-assisted instruction supplements classroom time in electro-technology and robotics course; Netflix and YouTube videos sustain beekeeping course over the winter, when students can’t access the hives.
    • Leads international trips to extend learning: students learned about recycling, biodiversity and Indigenous culture in Costa Rica, and developed lesson plans in Kenya.

    Outstanding achievements

    • Secured partnerships with a college leading to mechatronics and robotics program for high school students, and another college to develop the first-of-its-kind high school Green Certificate beekeeping program; students then launched the urban beekeeping program with municipality.
    • Has been part of Science 30 curriculum development team for Alberta Education for 25 years, developing and testing innovative diploma exam questions, and reviewing and marking exams.
    • Classes are continually above provincial averages; less than one percent of students have failed his courses over 25 years, including diploma-level courses in chemistry and science.
    • School named Canada’s Greenest School in 2018 (tied for first); robotics team regularly earns spot in world championships; Steven named 2018 Citizen of the Year by local chamber of commerce.
