Orlando Science Center was joined by almost 20 other Florida-based science centers, museums, corporations and educators in a sprawling STEM Day exhibition at the Florida Capitol on Tuesday, April 21. STEM refers to science, technology, engineering and math education.
Developed by Orlando Science Center, this collaborative event marked the second consecutive year for STEM Day, which the Science Center created to engage with and help legislators better understand the growing impacts of STEM education in terms of workforce and economic growth throughout the state.
Participating organizations were stationed inside and outside the Capitol building with interactive exhibits, simulators, robotics and more. State legislators discovered how museums and science centers bring STEM to life through engaging hands-on experiences while discussing the importance of STEM education as it relates to growing Florida’s technological workforce.
STEM Day partners included Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee; Collegiate Pathways, Inc.; FIRST Robotics; FIRST Robotics Team FRC Number 3502: "The Octo-π-Rates"; Florida Afterschool Network; Florida Hospital; Florida Virtual School; International Consortium for Advanced Manufacturing Research; Meta-Data Life Sciences (Aldebaran Robotics); Museum of Science & History, Jacksonville; Museum of Science & Industry, Tampa; National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (Florida State University); PHENIX Design Group, Inc.; River City Science Academy; STEM Sim Ex; Tallahassee Museum; and Valencia College.
