STEM:  Imagine the Future Recap

On October 16, STEM: Imagine the Future, drew just under 250 educators, businesses, students, and STEM providers from across the state to the Museum of the Rockies to learn and share how STEM enhances college and career readiness for Montana students. 

The event featured 32 exhibitors that provided information on STEM resources, practices and means of engagement.  PK-12 educators experienced exciting ways to integrate Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering into their classrooms in a variety of ways including robotics, ways to engage girls in STEM and blending science with art. 

The evening ended with an Ignite Session for forum participants - a series of inspiring five minute talks from STEM leaders that only added to the energy and enthusiasm of the evening.   Montana PBS filmed the Ignite session and will be releasing the video within the next few months that will be shared when it’s available.
