STEM Day with Marquette University and Dreams Soar
May 27, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join us for a day of fun STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities, presented by Marquette University College of Engineering and Dreams Soar, an organization focused on bringing awareness to women and girls in STEM throughout the world. Our promenade will feature:
Electronics: learn the basics of circuitry using Snap Circuits
Aviation: test different materials in this paper airplane challenge
Mechanics: get a simple intro to machines with an extending grabber
Computing: use a drag-and-drop coding program to experiment with EV3 robots
Dreams Soar founder, Shaesta Waiz was born in Afghanistan and immigrated to the United States. Today she is the first female civilian Afghan pilot, the first to earn an undergraduate (and graduated) degrees in her family, and is about the second woman (and youngest) to fly around the world solo, all to inspire other women to reach for the stars.
