NCF-SR3 Dream Big is Making STEM Exciting for High School Students



Exciting our youth for STEM is what today’s guests and show are all about. The State of Colorado with support from many companies and organizations is going all out to accelerate  the local technology based economy by engaging high school age youth.  Today we have some exciting guests; Jay Lindell from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, and Dr. Robert Fredell from the Challenger Learning Center.

The topic today is the second Annual Dream Big STEM event which is being held at Eads High School in Eads Colorado this year. Dream Big has been a wild success with organizations from all over the state volunteering their time and resources to bring so many exciting projects, and exhibits to a combined group of students which will be bussed in from many surrounding schools. Vendors provide technology exhibits, interactive training simulations, Operational Robotic displays, and Live flights for students to experience.
Jay says it is amazing how much of an impact the previous year’s Dream Big Event had on influencing students to engage in STEM type activities and clubs around the State. Listen and get involved, hear how we can get our youth excited for STEM.
