XSTEM Was Extraordinary!
I had the wonderful opportunity to host the XSTEM Live Event in San Diego as part of the programming of the USA Science & Engineering Festival!
Just imagine almost 2,000 middle and high school students together in one room, getting excited about science! The San Diego Conference Center was jam packed with students from various school districts throughout the San Diego region, ready to be engaged by incredible speakers and STEM workshops. Your's truly opened the morning with introductions and the rest of the day included wonderful sessions from a former pilot, a geneticist, a rocket scientist turned science communicator, and so much more.
Seeing the enthusiasm in the students faces after two school years of being confined in Zoom chats and virtual meetings was amazing. The energy was definitely in the building, and the questions presented surely did not disappoint. Students had a chance to learn about amazing opportunities in various STEM careers, engage with the speakers, and perform hands-on lessons provided by some of the sponsors.
Absolutely excited to continue this wonderful partnership with USA Science & Engineering Festival as we continue to bring more live events to students and educators across the country throughout the year!
