You Can Get Involved

As in years past, participants will take part in a variety of activities and competitions designed to provide insight into different types of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts.

“We are inviting parents and educators to come for a one-and-half hour workshop where we’ll discuss ways they can encourage young students to get them excited about opportunities through STEM,” says SWE President Emma Latham, a junior majoring in biomedical engineering. “This will include a panel of engineers and educators. We hope this will give our event a bigger impact, since they’ll leave with ideas and tools they need to encourage STEM education throughout the year.”
