Science Centers, Educators and Industry Leaders Advocate During STEM Day 2020
This Thursday, Orlando Science Center along with a legion of fellow museums, education and industry partners from across the state convene at the Capitol to share how developing a creative approach to STEM learning impacts everyone in Florida from cradle to career.
On February 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., a dozen organizations will demonstrate how innovative STEM learning and collaborations between industry, education and museums help build the pipeline today for Florida’s future high tech workforce. Activities will be available in the courtyard and the Capitol Rotundas.
Demonstrations will be incredibly visual and hands-on, including remote-controlled drones, virtual reality, 3-D printing demonstrations, flight simulators, live animals and physics demonstrations using mini-trampolines and giant slingshots. Also meet students from across the state and check out their homemade technologies, including robots and solar cars.
“STEM is more than a buzzword, it’s about our future,” said JoAnn Newman, Orlando Science Center President and CEO. “It’s about instilling skills in our young people to better prepare them to fill the jobs of tomorrow.”
