Thursday April 02, 2015

Over 50 enthusiastic young students, grades K-8, attended Exploration STEMB’s Kickoff Workshop at South Burlington High School (SBHS) in March. A nonprofit organization started by SBHS students, Exploration STEMB works to further education in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Business (STEMB). At the workshop, STEMB’s student teachers and volunteers taught courses in programming, computer-aided design, and 3D printing among other topics. STEMB’s goal is to inspire young innovators to enjoy and pursue activities and careers in science, technology, engineering, math, and business. According to Aster O’Leary, SBHS student and STEMB volunteer, “The Kickoff Workshop was a great success. Students and volunteers alike had a great time!”

Founded by SBHS junior Clark Deng while competing in the Real World Design Challenge, a national engineering competition for high school students, Exploration STEMB holds workshops where young innovators participate in a variety of STEMB related activities, including bridge building competitions, introduction to hacking and programming, and other cool science experiments.
