Dear Scholars, Families, and Community, 

Welcome to the seventh annual STEM Exploration Night, From Imagination to Innovation! Here in Federal Way Public Schools, we know that each scholar can achieve success, and it is our commitment to empower our students with access and choice by exposing them to the many opportunities and career paths available.  

STEM Exploration Night has become a scholar and family-favorite event in our district, allowing students to explore the world of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Washington state ranks #2 in the concentration of STEM jobs. Our scholars can start preparing to take part in these booming careers now by learning about STEM-related college and career pathways and opportunities that can lead to high-demand, high-wage professions. 

With STEM integrated into almost every aspect of our lives, we want to show scholars how their hobbies and interests are intertwined with science, technology, engineering, and math, even if it’s not what you traditionally think of as “STEM”. At this event, scholars of all ages can speak with diverse STEM professionals from various fields, engage in grade-level appropriate activities that can spur new passions, and learn how they can embark on a STEM journey in FWPS and beyond to turn their imagination into innovation.  

The journey starts NOW, and I’m excited for each of you to explore the opportunities at tonight's event! Thank you for planning for a BRIGHT future! 

Dr. Dani Pfeiffer
