You could crack code. You could race presidents. You could even walk off the top of a building (a virtual one, that is)!
With some old favorites and some new ones, this year’s STEM Symposium has been the best one yet. Vencore brought a flight simulator, and presenting sponsor LGS Innovations set up a station where kids learned to reverse engineer remote-controlled cars.
We even had a few celebrities, including astronauts and government leaders. “STEM is the future,” said JD Kathuria, CEO of WashingtonExec. “Seeing kids get excited and engaged– it’s why we keep doing this year after year.” This is WashingtonExec’s fourth STEM Symposium.
LGS’ virtual reality showcase was popular among the grownups– as was the Tesla Model X– but the kids’ winner of the day was… SLIME! In Altamira’s Girls in STEM wing, kids learned all about chemistry by playing with goo!
