There's no better time to get your child or student involved in STEM! I wanted to take the time to personally highlight a few of the events that happened this past week around the country.
Code Day is a national event, but specifically we're highlighting the one in Dallas, Texas. Code day Dallas was sponsored by T-Mobile and was organized by Mess Wright. It focused on a collective environment where students got to work on projects and network with other students to solve complex problems.
Greensboro, North Carolina
The National Society of Black Engineers hosted their Fall Regional Conference. This event brought out hundreds of engineers from elementary to professionals.
One Workshop was "The Art of Technical Communication" that was hosted by StemMedia. The event had students practicing their technical communication skills and lucky winners took home Beats headphones.
INTech for girls did a special workshop about coding. This was specifically for the ladies to help show that they are not alone in the journey to become successful engineers.
Leaders Emerging and Developing, or LEAD, held an ESTEM Entrepreneur Workshop with an esteemed panel of Larry B Hawkins,Jr., Tori N Wilson, and Kareem Smith. The students got to learn about how entrepreneurship and engineering can go hand in hand.
Last but not least, check out what Andi DuMont (of the watermark blog) was working on with this storm water pump. Follow her YouTube page to see that women do belong in engineering as well.
