Courtney McNabb, STEM Scouts Executive of the Denver Area Council, once again sat down with radio host Tammy Schmidt on the Colorado Business Roundtable’s Connect & Collaborate radio show and podcast. This time, McNabb updates Schmidt on the progress of the program, the two further discussed the importance of introducing youth to STEM subjects to cultivate a lifelong interest, and how to the program got into local schools.
“The need for a STEM-educated workforce is primary in Colorado, and the key is to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering and math subjects, so they can build on those skills for great future careers.
STEM Scouts is working to make that happen by reaching girls and boys in elementary, middle and high school. The program features four to six-week learning modules including hands-on lab experiments in forensics, robotics, circuitry, chemistry and more.”
