Call for STEM Presenters

Published on October 8, 2014, by

Here is a STEM education outreach opportunity with elementary students, parents and educators at Virginia Peterson Elementary in Paso Robles on February 5th, 5-7pm. They conduct a very popular Engineering Night once a year to have engineers and scientists visit their school to talk about neat stuff.

The presenters will be talking and/or demonstrating to small revolving groups. The presenters will each have their own classroom and whatever technology is available in it. We are very excited about all things engineering and, of course, energy. Just about any science or engineering topic would be appropriate. Also, Spanish speakers would be great.
