Posted on

On March 7, the annual STEM Day at the Capitol event drew more than double last year’s attendees as students, education supporters and business leaders rallied in the rotunda to celebrate Missouri’s growing math and science efforts.

The celebration, hosted by the Missouri Chamber Foundation’s Mathematics and Science Coalition and Verizon, showcased several of the career opportunities STEM education provides. Throughout the day, student groups and organizations provided demonstrations and hands-on activities for students and legislators.

The Missouri Chamber and its Mathematics and Science Coalition engage businesses and education leaders statewide to help ensure Missouri’s students are prepared to enter tomorrow’s workforce.
