2014 STEM Expo

The ASCE Central Ohio Section welcomed over 140 students in grades K – 8 at the STEM Expo on February 22, 2014. The students explored hands-on activities and exhibits in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math fields sponsored by local firms, professional societies, and educational departments. In addition to over 20 interactive activities and exhibits, the students and their parents were able to tour the Ohio State Center for Automotive Research and participate in an interactive program by BUGMAN Education. Students also received take home activity bags provided by HR Gray.

This educational outreach event was organized by the ASCE Younger Member Group and held at The Metro Early College High School. The event was advertised through Columbus area-wide elementary and middle schools, where information was shared through classroom and upper grade level science teachers as well as electronic media outlets. The cost for the venue was covered through the State Public Affairs Grant program, while all activities and exhibits were provided on a volunteer basis. The Younger Member Group would like to thank the following activity sponsors and exhibiters for making this event so successful:
