STUDENTS' EXPOSURE TO STEM IN SCHOOLS IS CRITICAL

Last week, students at Englewood Elementary School engaged in a variety of activities designed to expose them to science, technology, engineering, art and math in a fun way.

The students had an opportunity to solve crimes, make messes and more, while learning about important subjects in the process.
Hands-on activities are a great way to expose students to STEM – science, technology, engineering and math – in an engaging way that will pique their interest and inspire them to want to learn more.

Finding ways to make those topics interesting and engaging for students could have a tremendous effect on their future careers.

If students are exposed to those topics in an engaging way from a young age, they will be more likely to develop an appreciation for those fields. Having an appreciation for those fields will benefit them throughout their lives.

That's why we're excited to see local schools promoting those topics.

This summer, Nash Community College is playing host to a couple of science, technology, engineering and mathematics camps for rising 6th through 12th graders. Students who attend the camps will have an opportunity to participate in laboratory experiments and other activities.
