National S.T.E.M./S.T.E.A.M. Day

November 5, 2017

 

 

Full S.T.E.A.M. ahead! November 8 is a day meant to inspire kids to explore and pursue their interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Inspired by the Project Mc² brand, created by MGA Entertainment, the S.T.E.A.M.- based franchise features four super smart girls who are part of a super-secret spy organization called NOV8 (that’s “innovate”).


Fun fact: The November 8th date is a play on words for same as that super- secret organization, NOV8, making it the perfect date to inspire innovation!

Why is S.T.E.M./S.T.E.A.M. so important, now more than ever before? 

  • S.T.E.M./S.T.E.A.M. is all around us and shapes our everyday experiences

  • The U.S. has fallen behind other nations in science and math education; we need to motivate young kids to pursue these subjects to keep up with the rest of the world

  • We must close the gender gap that exists in S.T.E.M./S.T.E.A.M. related-careers. Building interest in girls is critical to their future earning potential.
