This all-day free event will include exciting exhibits, inspiring speakers, and panel experts who will 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.
Over 1,500 students, parents, teachers, corporate/government executives, and non-profit representatives are projected to attend.
Mission & Outcome:
Every parent or guardian can be a driving force in a child’s pursuit and curiosity of the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields. The positive influence of a parent on a child’s academic achievements is irreplaceable. Whether a child is interested in computer coding or chemistry, or has yet to show an interest in STEM, parents need actionable information to spark and motivate their children.
The symposium will provide the opportunity for K-12 students in the National Capital Region (NCR) to showcase their achievements in STEM, and to interact with key business, education, non-profit and government leaders through real-life applications and presentations about how science, technology, engineering and mathematics impacts our community.
From an industry leader perspective, professionals will have the opportunity to establish and strengthen critical relationships between business and education professionals in our region. Leaders will also be able to gauge the STEM proficiency of the local prospective STEM pipeline.
Who Should Attend?
Students (first grade and above), parents, educators, nonprofit leaders, corporate leaders and federal leaders with a vested interest in the National Capital Region (NCR) STEM pipeline.
What to Expect:
The 2015 K-12 STEM Symposium is a free, exciting and all-day forum that equally engages children, parents, and teachers, coupled with corporate, government, academia and non-profit executives alike from the STEM fields.
Activities for the day will include: hands-on experiments for children, government and industry exhibitors, student science fair projects 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.
Each attendee will receive a Parent-STEM action plan geared towards nurturing a child’s curiosity towards the STEM fields.
Kids are welcome to attend all panel and keynote discussions. School maps will be provided on-site.
Parents have a key role in engaging children early and keeping them interested in pursuing a STEM career. Get informed. Get excited. Get started.
The 2015 K-12 STEM Symposium’s action plan for parents and STEM stakeholders is just the beginning. We will continue the conversation online on the STEM Symposium website (www.stemsymposium.com).
