|MORRISVILLE— STEM For Kids Morrisville celebrated ribbon cutting ceremony with a STEM Expo that drew energetic kids and their parents on Sunday May 21st. The “sizzling” ceremony featured hands-on activities providing a sneak peek at STEM Summer Camps – children learned about the girl power inside computers, got hands-on with making computer games and made rain clouds.
STEM For Kids provides summer camps, trackouts, afterschool and STEM Saturdays in engineering, robotics and computer programming for pre-K, elementary and middle school students at its Morrisville and North Raleigh STEM Centers and at various local schools to provide real life experiences in the fastest growing fields of STEM.
Speaking of the importance of STEM education to North Carolina and to Morrisville, Steve Rao, the Pro Tem Mayor of Morrisville said “Autonomous vehicles will be tested on 540 in the next 8 years; robotics, smarter cities, smarter technologies, smart farming … they will create many new industries which are going to require new skills, new thinking, team building, collaboration in addition to what you are doing at school”.
We couldn’t be happier to have STEM For Kids as a member of the Morrisville Chamber of Commerce,” said 2017 Chamber Chair David Brunner. “We welcome them to the business community here in Morrisville and look forward to their continued success.”
“We are excited about STEM For Kids’ programs being offered in Morrisville and can’t wait for my daughter to join these programs”, said a parent.
Rao said “we have to prepare the [future career] flight for our children… I can’t thank STEM For Kids enough for making this investment”.
“The STEM For Kids story began in Raleigh about six years ago and we are excited to continue to serve children at our newest location in the heart of the Triangle,” said Moni Singh, Founder and CEO. This summer will feature camps in robotics, computer game making, biomedical engineering and computer programming for kids. Parents can register their children for full week, half week or partial week of camp.
