Students, teachers, businesses rally for STEM education

Education supporters rallied at the Missouri Capitol on March 1 to celebrate the state’s growing math and science efforts. The annual STEM Day at the Capitol, hosted by the Missouri Chamber Foundation’s Mathematics and Science Coalition and Verizon, showcased the opportunities STEM education provides.

Throughout the day, student groups and coalition members provided a variety of demonstrations and activities. Remote-controlled robots roamed the floor, weaving through the crowds. Pfizer had hands-on chemical experiments for students to try and The Boeing Company’s F/A-18 flight simulator was a big hit.
