More than 900 students converged on campus Saturday April 6 for Florida A&M University’s College of Science & Technology sixth annual STEM Day workshop. The daylong event is an outreach activity for 6 – 12-grade students. Activities are designed to increase students’ interest in pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and math, and to highlight the various STEM initiatives taking place on FAMU’s campus.
Since its inception the program has grown. About 100 students attended in 2013, the first year it was held. Middle and high school students travel from as far as Georgia and Tampa to attend one of the most widely anticipated STEM events for children in Florida. During the day students participated in virtual reality experiences, live simulations, engineering activities, and chemistry exhibits.
