STEAM Career Connections
As a way to support STEAM at OPES, we are offering opportunities to meet face-to-face with inspiring STEAM leaders in our communities. Our second speaker will be at OPES on Wednesday, April 3rd from 7:10-7:30. Our speaker is Esha Thorat, the founder of Birdlet Foundation. Her mission is to expose elementary and middle school students to the basics of neuroscience and demonstrate brain related experiments to them. The goal is to help grow their interest in neuroscience and possibly encourage them to pursue a career in the medical field.
All students are invited to attend as their morning choice that day. We ask that students arrive on time if your child chooses to attend. Please keep in mind we will shut the door at 7:15 so the speaker is not interrupted. We are excited for our students to make real-word connections to what they experience in STEAM at OPES.
