Hello and welcome to the IMS2016 STEM Student Experience!
As professionals and educators, we believe in providing students with a forum of learning and discovery. At the IMS2016 STEM Student Experience, we strive to stimulate and enhance student interest in STEM subjects. The STEM Student Experience has been running successfully for the last 3 years. Our hope is to inspire young generations to pursue studies and future careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math!
The STEM Student Experience consists of a full day of fun and exciting educational activities centered around the latest in wireless science and technology. On this focus day, students will participate in demonstrations and guided tours that provide an intimate look at the RF and microwave infrastructure which enable today's technological innovation.
This is a very exciting time in which technology is transforming how people view and interact with the world. By investing in the young students of today, we are building a bright future of STEM for future generations.
The program is currently open to students in grades 7-12.
Date: Thursday, 26 May 2016
Location: San Francisco Moscone Center.
Goals for the program are as follows:
1. To introduce students to Microwave Electronics (technology/careers/networking) through a Science, Technology Engineering & Math (STEM) focused “day at a conference” experience.
2. To integrate university/industry educational engagement with technical speakers, hands-on activities, informational tables, and a tour of the show floor (exhibition).
3. To create an opportunity for quality interaction between possible future engineers/scientists, practicing engineers and college students set in the dynamic and engaging foum of an international engineering event.
Target Audience: Motivated middle and high school age students, with an interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math). In addition, we would like to involve a pool of 5 to 10 high school/middle school teachers in the program. The program is open to children of IMS attendees traveling with parents, as well as students from local public/private high schools and home schools.
Requirements: All participants need so submit an application and a parental release form. Participants must able to commit a full day to the planned activities. A selection committee will choose the actual participants based on information on the application form (including description of academic interests and extra-curricular STEM activities) and space availability.
