STEM Exploration Night

STEM Exploration Night

  • ALL are welcome to the first annual STEM Exploration Night!

    The event will take place at the new Federal Way High School — a site beaming with modernized learning environments. All 23,000 of our scholars, and their families, are invited to attend this exciting event  on Feb. 23, 2017 from 5–7:30 p.m. 

    What will scholars experience by attending this action-packed night full of opportunities to prepare them for college and career? 

    • Talk with local small and large companies about what they need to do to prepare for exciting STEM careers. Top companies include Boeing, Microsoft, McKinstry, Google, Fred Hutch, Hexcel Corporation, and many more! 
    • Participate in a chess tournament, or a hack-a-thon computer coding challenge (prizes for the winners!) 
    • For our first 500 scholars, receive a STEM Exploration Night t-shirt 
    • Experience robotics demonstrations 
    • See examples of class projects and clubs they can participate in now to set them on the path to a great STEM career. 

    The elementary, middle and high school with the highest percentage of scholars attending will receive a STEM-related opportunity.   

    While childcare is not provided, we welcome scholars to bring the whole family to the event! Other details include: 

    • Light dinner is provided. 
    • Bus transportation will be provided to and from the event for scholars and their families. 
    • Spanish, Korean and Russian interpreters will be available. 

    This college and career readiness event is in direct support of our district Goal 5, Persistence to Graduation: High School Graduation through Successful Transitions. With Washington State ranking #1 in the concentration of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) jobs, we want Federal Way scholars to know about the wide range of STEM jobs available, and to start planning now to be ready to step into STEM careers. 

    We look forward to seeing you there!
