Next Generation STEM Day

Saturday, February 10, 2024

Next Generation STEM Day, previously known as 8th Grade Day, is a Society of Women Engineers sponsored event, but several organizations and majors in the college take part. The event allows for middle school students to get a deeper look into science and engineering which may become a future career choice for them.

Next Generation STEM Day participants.

This event is a unique opportunity provided to a limited number of middle school students. Registration is open to all U.S. students, grades 6-8, who are exploring STEM fields. There is no previous knowledge of STEM required for this event, just a curiosity about STEM and an eagerness to learn.

Next Generation STEM Day is intended to be a fun, interactive, in-person learning event. Attendees will receive a certificate of completion after the conference, and we will even have a few prizes!
