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.
