Are you interested in learning more about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and STEM careers? Then, join us Friday, April 11, 2014 for the Ten80 STEM Expo Event at Medgar Evers College (MEC). This event showcases the National STEM League (NSL) initiative and the relevance of STEM to every student. Close to 500 students and educators will gather for this exciting Expo!
Ten80’s National STEM League is a STEM initiative that inspires all students to engage in sustained learning, a collaborative network and optional competition league adopted by schools in 37 states. Students are invited to own their own business that specializes in racing, robotic exploration, energy technologies or innovations that emerge through the combination of hardware and software. They’ll collaborate and compete with other schools in the northeast, benefitting from over ten years of development from Ten80’s engineer-educators and the role models provided by the U.S. Army.
“The U.S. Army supports high-performance education initiatives that are research-based, compelling for youth and reach a widely underserved audience,” said Mark Davis, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army for Marketing and director of the Army Marketing and Research Group. “The level of engineering and teamwork on display in Ten80′s classrooms and competitions is reflective of the Army’s leading-edge technology and the powerful, realistic training of its Army Strong Soldiers.”
The EXPO is open to all educators, parents and mentors interested in learning about STEM and about the National STEM League.
