Student participants at the STEM You Can! Video Contest Awards Gala
On April 30th the STEM You Can! Video Contest Awards Gala was held at the Rochester Museum & Science Center.
Eight teams of students from area schools were recognized for outstanding videos highlighting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Students from elementary, middle, and high school all submitted short videos illustrating concepts such as robotics, electricity, and the weight of electricity.
All of the youth who participated were from grades 3 to 12 in the Finger Lakes region. The students worked individually or in teams with two or three other students, plus an adult mentor or adviser, to create three-minute videos that explored STEM topics and their impact in our world today.
Here at the Office of the Education Pipeline, our exciting initiatives take us across the state working to provide the best service, future, and education possible to the people of New York, from cradle to career. It’s a big job, but we’re up for the challenge through increased systemness and great partners across the state. With so much happening, one of our biggest challenges is helping people not miss the amazing opportunities across the state!
With that in mind, we are pleased to bring you this regional news update, which will highlight the upcoming events and developments connected to the Education Pipeline. This update will focus on the extremely active Finger Lakes region, where a SUNY Works pilot site and an active STEM hub are leading drivers for success.
