As a platinum sponsor of the Summer of Dreams program, Siemens is helping to bring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education to homeless students in Central Florida.

In partnership with Orlando Science Center, Siemens engineers volunteered to lead an interactive, hands-on Discovery Lab that featured in-depth design challenges based on engineering principles. One of the projects taught participants how to build a load-bearing bridge.

Now in its third year, Summer of Dreams was founded to fill an unmet need for food, shelter and supervision for homeless students when school is not in session. The program provides two meals a day, activities, school supplies, academic and STEM-enrichment, and mentoring — as well as financial counseling for parents, offered by founding sponsor Fifth Third Bank.
