UNF Students Participate in Stem Awareness
University of North Florida CCEC students participated as “College Captains” for the Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM
) Awareness Program at Englewood High School on December 16, 2011. This event allowed high school students, who have interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math, to learn how the topics relate to everyday real world applications. The CCEC and high school students worked together on building a “newspaper” house, circuit board analysis games, and a “grab bag” future invention exercise that would help solve future problems with society. The three projects led the students to use team work as well as critical thinking in each scenario; by working together they made their ideas into a visual reality.
