Support STEM Education: A Call to Action
Too often we hear and read that the United States is falling behind in educating our youth, specifically within the areas referred to as STEM (Science, Technology, Education & Math).
What if you could help change that? What if it was as easy as watching and sharing a short video with your social circles and encouraging the teachers you personally know to share this with their colleagues, districts and students?
We encourage you to do exactly that today. Watch the below video starring NASA Hall of Fame Astronaut – Professor Jeff Hoffman and share this with those who can make an impact. By getting students involved in project-based education where competition and collaboration are at the core of the experience, you can help expose students to an incredible challenge, and maybe even trigger a life-long love affair with technology and its far reaching implications.
Need one more nudge? This competition is 100% FREE to the schools and students involved.
Please enjoy and share the short video today!
