Kentwood Public Schools is in the midst of seeking employer partners for their Fall/Winter 2017 STEM Immersion events. KPS hosts this event each fall for every 5th grade student in an effort to expose students to the varied world and industries that science, technology, engineering & math (STEM) encompasses. Want to know what the event looks like? Check out this great School News Network article.
Nancy McKenzie, STEM Coordinator, is looking for industry partners who are willing “lead 3 breakout sessions of 25 minutes in length for any of the 4 events at which they choose to participate. We ask that they share information with our students regarding their companies and how STEM works within that company. It is very helpful if there is some sort of hands-on learning activity for the students during the 25 minute sessions. “Show and tell” of any parts they manufacture, instruments or supplies they use, computer programming they develop, etc. is always a popular part of each session.”
The STEM Immersion events will run from 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM on September 15, October 20, November 17, and December 8.
Please consider joining this effort and reach out to Nancy to secure your spot; she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (616) 455-1200 x32218.
