The Missouri Mathematics and Science Coalition’s annual STEM Day at the Capitol will focus on K-12, higher education and STEM programming. Students, businesses and organizations will have a chance to share their passion for and knowledge of STEM with Missouri legislators. Educators and administrators can demonstrate the impact STEM has on student achievement and why Missouri needs to invest more in curriculum, program support and professional development. STEM program directors and business professionals will have the opportunity to promote the advantages STEM programming can have on economic development across the state.
There will be space available on the 3rd floor Rotunda of the Capitol where participating groups can showcase their STEM programs and projects. Current exhibits range from chemical reactions by Pfizer chemists, CoBot robotics by HTE Automation, Brewer Science electrical experiments, a F-18 Flight Simulator by Boeing, the FIRST Robotics Capitol Cup competition, and many other university and K-12 STEM programming.
