Visit a Classroom
What are the unanswered questions in science? What are the unsolved problems facing our community? How can our young people envision themselves addressing the challenges of our future through enhanced STEM literacy and through local STEM careers?
To give students a real sense for how science is done, who scientists are, and what questions remain unanswered, local STEM professionals will visit metro area classrooms to share their stories. STEM professionals include researchers, technicians, entrepreneurs, and anyone whose career involves the application of STEM learning. The classroom visits, to take place in March 2016, will inspire students to imagine themselves shaping the future as the STEM-literate professionals of tomorrow.
