Join the Office of Naval Research (ONR) for an online discussion at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 20, about its goal to enrich science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education for K-12 students.
ONR is leading the Navy’s STEM2Stern initiative, a collection of efforts designed to encourage and inspire today’s students into STEM disciplines. By sparking scientific curiosity, supporting educational initiatives (e.g., science fairs, robotics competitions, etc.) and …mentoring K-12 students, ONR hopes to ensure a pipeline of unparalleled technology talent in the future.
In addition to hosting regular STEM2Stern dialogues, ONR joins the nonprofit Iridescent group Oct. 16 for the opening of a new ONR-funded science studio in Los Angeles, with another to open Nov. 4 in New York. The studio will provide hands-on learning through sophisticated research equipment, tools, mentoring, film and interactive art — all designed to heighten science appreciation and opportunities among urban, at-risk youth. This month, ONR also co-sponsors the first-ever USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo to elevate STEM awareness on the National Mall, Oct. 23-24.
