The Siemens Foundation and Discovery Education are partnering to host the annual Siemens National Day of STEM, designed to spark a national conversation about pathways to success for students through STEM and demonstrate how science, technology, engineering and math work together to shape the future.
The mission of Siemens STEM Day is to provide classroom materials that help K-12 students develop the knowledge, skills and self-confidence they need to succeed in STEM and in the workforce. Available at no cost, the program emphasizes the importance of STEM through 150+ engaging hands-on activities.
To celebrate the Siemens Foundation’s second annual National Day of STEM, educators, students, parents and communities are encouraged to participate in a national online STEM dialogue using #TheSTEMequation. This virtual event will debut new high school activities and career profiles. The STEM Day online event will also include fun gift card prizes and will culminate with the announcement of the grand prize winner of “The Possibility Grant Sweepstakes,” which awards a deserving school $10,000 to fund a student STEM initiative.
