We’ve all heard the buzz about a STEM education; now is your chance to see for yourself how students use their education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
District 50’s first ever STEM Fair is scheduled for Saturday morning, May 3 at Westminster High School. It’s a chance for the public to see the results of the student’s hands-on education in projects ranging from CO2 Car Competitions to 3D Printing to Truss Testing (strong bridge building).
Students from Colorado STEM Academy, the Westminster High School STEM program, “Project Lead the Way” at Ranum, Shaw Heights and Scott Carpenter Middle Schools will be participating. The day wraps up with hot dogs and plenty of conversation.
STEM schools and programs have grown increasingly popular as employers look for graduates who have skills related to the STEM fields. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment related to STEM is expected to grow by more than 9 million between 2012 and 2022.
An in-depth look at the job market for the future can be found in the spring issue of “Occupational Outlook Quarterly.”
