Providing educational leadership;promoting educational excellence



How can we form partnerships between professionals and teachers to bring real-world STEM to our classrooms? Join us as we tour local businesses and industries to learn about their work, explore opportunities to bring scientists and engineers to our school, and receive lessons that connect to our curriculum.

Meet at SERESC and visit two sites during the field trip day.


Participants will:

  • learn about school and business/industry partnerships
  • explore opportunities to bring STEM professionals to your school or classroom
  • receive lessons that connect local STEM examples to classroom science
