STEM Day at the Florida Capitol was a huge success!
On March 5, 2014, Orlando Science Center and partners including Lockheed Martin, Florida State University's National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Museum of Science and Industry (Tampa), STEM Sim Ex, FIRST and Team Orlando converged in Tallahassee to facilitate discussion with state legislators; engage them in active participation of hands-on STEM activities; and promote the value of science centers and strategic partnerships as a tool to inspire and encourage our youth to pursue STEM careers.
Collaboration between science centers, schools and industry are vital to filling the STEM pipeline with a comprehensive approach from cradle to career.
Among the legislators pictured are Florida Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera, Rep. Jason T. Brodeur, Rep. David Santiago and Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda.
