Upcoming STEM Activities for Students
Below are some upcoming exciting STEM opportunities for school students, including highlights in transportation.
USA Science and Engineering Festival
The 2020 USA Science and Engineering Festival (USASEF) will be held virtually starting this Saturday, September 26, through October 3. This biannual festival brings together STEM programs and initiatives from around the country, including transportation, giving students a unique opportunity to learn in an open forum.
This year, with the Festival being held virtually, students and families can register for the SciFest All Access event free of charge. Please visit the SciFest Registration Page to learn more and register.
The Maryland STEM Festival will have a virtual “booth” at USASEF, showcasing local activities. WDCSITE has contributed a video to their booth that highlights autonomous vehicle testing in our region, so make sure to visit!
The 2020 Maryland STEM Festival and National STEM Day
Local STEM events are being planned as part of the 2020 Maryland STEM Festival, which will run virtually from October 2 through November 1, with activities being organized by groups representing every Maryland county and Baltimore City. WDCSITE volunteers are working with the Festival staff to build on successful events held over the last few years to plan more exciting activities for students. Please visit the Maryland STEM Festival website for more information. Be on the lookout for transportation events, including a possible Board member sighting on a multi-disciplinary engineering panel on October 7 and a statewide event on autonomous vehicles!
National STEM Day is November 8! Volunteers with ITE are working hard to plan activities for students as part of the celebration. WDCSITE volunteers are coordinating with several county and municipal school systems within our Section to plan exciting STEM events on or around that day. Be on the lookout for more information in the coming weeks about potential events in your area!
If you would like to volunteer alongside our active members to help organize STEM events this fall, or if you have any questions, please contact Adam Greenstein (firstname.lastname@example.org).
