It has been a very long time since I have blogged. I have been really, really busy with school, rocketry and skiing (whenever I get a chance) Plus, my VEX IQ robotics team is working around the clock, preparing for the State Championships. However, I wanted to share some news with you. I will be presenting at the 2015 STEM Symposium (www.stemsymposium.com) next month! I will be discussing robotsNOW and the importance of after-school robotics programs to encourage STEM learning. I will also provide a “hands-on” VEX IQ demonstration.
The 2015 K-12 STEM Symposium for the National Capital Region (NCR) is an all-day free event that will include exciting exhibits, inspiring speakers, and panel experts. The purpose of the STEM Symposium is to highlight just how vital it is to engage parents, students, teachers, corporate/government execs and non-profit representatives alike in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) education and careers. Activities for the day will include: hands-on experiments for children, government and industry exhibitors, and panel discussions with STEM stakeholders. Attendees will also be able to find information about government and industry STEM-related high school and college internships. Over 1,500 students, parents, teachers, corporate/government executives, and non-profit representatives are projected to attend. Hope to see you there!
Event Information: Date: March 7, 2015 | Time: 9:00 am to 3:00 pm | Location: The Nysmith School (13625 EDS Drive, Herndon, Virginia 20171)
