STEM event on the UAS campus - Wed Oct 17 4:30pm

Hello environmental science and geography students!  A reminder that UAS, along with the National Science Foundation and Juneau STEM coalition, are co-sponsoring a great opportunity for you to engage with the greater STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) community in Juneau, this afternoon and evening on the UAS campus!  Professionals from all walks of life in STEM fields will be in attendance so it's a good way to network, make possible contacts for internship opportunities, and even scope for possible future employment and other learning / training possibilities locally. 

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

SouthEast Exchange is having our second annual gathering event!

Join us next Wednesday, October 17, 2018 from 5-7pm at the UAS Rec Center for a night of networking between professionals and educational communities in Juneau. Just like last year, we hope to unite STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) community members, college students and educators in order to enrich learning opportunities in schools.

  • What: SEE STEM Networking Event
  • When: Wednesday, Oct 17. 5 PM - 7 PM
  • Where: UAS Rec Center 
  • Why: At last year's kickoff event, 180 professionals and teachers gathered for games, conversation, drinks and bouncing around ideas. Since that time, STEM community members have visited classrooms and contributed to lesson plans and activities, and all of you have influenced teachers in ways that aren’t always immediately visible. We’d like to keep the collaborations going and inspire more! Based on feedback from last year, this year’s event will feature more focused brainstorming around specific classroom activities (i.e., science kits) and specific curriculum topics . There will also be space for educators and community members to confer with each other independently of that structure if they prefer.  

If that's not enough - we'll have some tasty snacks and cold beverages as well!

Food (burgers, veggie burgers, sausages and salad) and drinks will be provided. Feel free to bring roommates or friends. The picnic areas at Auke Rec. are located just off Glacier Hwy about three miles out the road from the roundabout in Auke Bay (see "Auke Rec Picnic Site" in Google Maps). If you need a ride out to the bbq, please send an email to Eran Hood (ewhood@alaska.edu) and we will get a van to drive people from and back to campus. Hope to see you Friday.

Cheers,
