The Festival is dedicated to helping students find mentors!
The USA Science & Engineering Festival student outreach programs like the upcoming X-STEM Symposium, open to students in middle and high school on April 28th, and the Nifty Fifty (x4) introduce real life STEM Role Models and Mentors to eager students. The X-STEM Symposium features an all day event with presentations from some of the top innovators in the country, including young mentors that are pursuing their dreams! Our Nifty Fifty (x4) program allows schools across the Metropolitan D.C. area to host some the nation's most prolific scientists, mathematicians, innovators and engineers! Read more about these incredible programs in this March edition of the Festival newsletter.
Do you live outside of the Metro D.C. area? Not to worry- you can bring these innovators into your classroom or living room with our 2014 X-STEM Video Collection. And stay tuned for Nifty Fifty Speaker Podcasts that we will be broadcasting weekly on the Festival Blog.
Introducing a new classroom contest! Together with our Youth Advisory Board, we are excited to launch the ENIAC Classroom Design Prize, a prize competition challenging students to design creative alterations to classroom environments in order to engage more women in computer science. Read more about this competition in the article below.
