Connecticut Science Center STEM events

Here’s some fun footage of kids and adults sewing along as a part of the CT Science Center’s Careers in STEM showcase on March 31, 2023.

About 450 students cycled through the science center during the event. It was so fun!

Then on April 1st I had the distinct pleasure of joining a panel for the science center’s Youth in STEM: a leadership and change maker summit. Not only was it an immense pleasure to share the stage with amazing folks like UConn’s Gladis Kersaint, Amy Gonsalves from Dominion Energy, and Alex Rodriguez from Save the Sound, but we had the opportunity to see some amazing student projects.

The students work on a research project with support from the Science Center and in partnership with community experts. They shared their results in a poster session. Clearly a lot of work went into these projects, which were absolutely stunning. It looked more like research from undergraduates than high school students. It was truly such a pleasure to be a part of this event. I love the work the science center is doing to get kids super excited about and engaged on STEM fields.
