Description

On Saturday, October 20, 2018, the Developing Roots in STEM (D.R.i.S.) Program in collaboration with the Metro Community Development, along with other co-sponsors will host a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Awareness Expo at the Delavan Grider Community Center in Buffalo, New York.

“When Wakanda Meets Hidden Figures is a one day event focusing on increasing the awareness, exposure and number of underrepresented students pursuing STEM professions. The D.R.i.S. STEM Expo offers hands-on activities and demonstrations about STEM careers.

The purpose and mission of this event will expose Buffalo-area youth to the opportunities available in the STEM disciplines. Participants will be engaged in eight (8) hands-on activities and demonstrations to increase their knowledge and awareness in these respective fields by gaining information about the STEM areas through engagement with some of local underrepresented scientists, engineers, mathematicians and educators.

This STEM Expo will be free and open to students in grades K-12 attending various educational institutions in the Buffalo-area. We anticipate over 500 – 700 attendees for this event.
