MORRISTOWN, NJ– High school students are encouraged to join STEM professionals and regional leaders for a day of STEM, innovation, and challenges. On March 3, a maximum of 50 high school students is invited to attend the action packed workshop with the Exploring program held at York College in New York City.
The bus will leave Morristown in the morning and head to York College for the workshop. The cost per participant is $50. All are asked to register online by Friday, February 10, 2017. Space is limited to the first 50 registrants.
On event day, students will attend workshops that focus on content & skills related to one of the three critical aspects of innovation: the engineering process, enterprise process and leadership. Students will come back together to share lessons learned and to begin collaborating with one another in the challenges posed in each workshop. The challenges overlap so students will be stronger if they work together.
All students that attend the experience are invited to continue working on their ideas through the Student Innovators-in-Training Challenge or Community Leadership Challenge. Students earn prizes tailored to each challenge such as mentoring and/or cash awards to work on their ideas.
The program is open to males and females currently enrolled in high school. The $50 participation fee included membership, insurance, transportation, a t-shirt, and lunch. Those interested in attending are encouraged to register online by Friday, February 10, 2017 at: www.ppcbsa.org/programs/exploring .
