Orlando Science Center and leaders from science centers and museums from around the state are planning to join Orlando Science Center during STEM Day at the Florida Capitol on February 27, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
A dozen organizations will display and demonstrate how innovative STEM learning and collaborations between industry, education and museums can help build the pipeline today for Florida’s future high tech workforce.
Science museums act as a hub for STEM learning and can easily facilitate opportunities between industry, education and the private citizens. It is one of the few places where these three audiences can easily and effectively connect for discussion and demonstration.
These partnerships are crucial to building the stem pipeline. Collaborations between science museums, corporations and education are key to developing a comprehensive approach to promote STEM learning from cradle to career.
During STEM Day at the Capitol, participating partners, including student groups, will share their passion for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with legislators, demonstrating the impact that their efforts can have on economic development across the state.
Technology displays and science demonstrations will be featured throughout the Capitol and will reinforce how Science Centers and museums light the spark of curiosity, promote future careers and build essential 21st Century skills.
