Discovery Education is committed to transforming teaching and learning through innovative partnerships with school districts and like-minded organizations around the world. It is a company fueled by innovation, full of forward-thinkers who are passionate about harnessing the power of media and technology to better address and empower today's 21st century learners.
For #GivingTuesday, Discovery Education will hold a livestream event for students nationwide to hear from our company's best and brightest employees. Students will have the opportunity to experience first-hand some of the unexpected and exciting careers that are powered by science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
On Tuesday, December 3rd from 11am to 1pm EST, students will meet 4 revolutionary STEM professionals—a Mobile App Developer, Social Media & Communications Executive, a Producer, and a Graphic Designer. These 4 individuals will give their time to students, answering questions and sharing insights that will inspire curiosity about the vast array of career options that are available to students who pursue STEM.
Discovery Education's App Developer is an innovator who used her knowledge of STEM to create one of the nation's first fully digital and interactive digital textbooks, now used by hundreds of thousands of students nationwide. Our Director of Communications is a STEM storyteller, collaborating with social media and print publications to engage the public in the important work being done by education leaders on the ground. Discovery's lead Graphic Designer weaves the "A" into STEM, creating remarkable imagery and visuals using advanced computer software programs. Our Producer records and edits our incredible footage with advanced technology to create engaging programming that makes STEM come to life in the classroom.
We hope you can join us for this virtual experience to engage classrooms throughout the United States, inspiring students to dive in and discover exciting career paths that STEM subjects can lead to.
No special equipment is needed to view this event online. All you need is an internet connected computer (and a way to share with students - projector and speakers.) Students will have the chance to submit questions during the livestream.
