Join us Fall 2020 for our EXPLORATION STEM Virtual Event Week!

Join us for a virtual event week as we explore the wide world of science, technology, engineering, and math! This workshop will introduce students to a wide range of STEM disciplines and the chance to meet K-State faculty, staff and students. All students in grades 6-8 are welcome. To accommodate for a range of school schedules, this program will have asynchronous and synchronous components. 

What is the Goal?

The mission of GROW is to increase girls’ interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.

Who Should Attend?

This event is intended for students currently in the 6th—8th grades. Students can participate on their own, or as a group from their school or community. 

What Will A Virtual Event Look Like?

EXPLORATION STEM virtual event week will combine pre-recorded sessions with live sessions. They will feature conversations and demonstrations hosted by K-State faculty, staff and students, as well as hands-on activities that you can do at home (supplies included!) All pre-recorded sessions will be available to access for a full week (Monday-Friday) so that you can work around your school schedule. Any live sessions will occur on a weekday evening. 

When Are They? 

This event will be held October 26-30. Registration closes September 28 and gives you access to the entire week of events. Join our mailing list to be the first to know when registration is open!
