Track: STEM in Education
This session will give strategies on how to have a successful STEM program. It will explain how to engage, inspire and empower the students to own their learning.
Future Stars, is starting it fourth year of the Hands On STEM program. We will discuss how we have been able to keep the program moving forward and growing it to a second site. We will provide strategies on how our program has been able to sustain the youth and market to attract more students. We will also provide tips on how we recruited volunteers and support for the Hands On STEM Fair which had over 300 attendees and 90 volunteers this past April. As IT professionals and Engineers, we bring a different energy into the classroom and lesson and will show how that plays a roll in having a successful program.
