Growth Starts At The STEM

Growth Starts At The STEM

(NAPSI)—To become more competitive in the all-important science and technology fields, today’s young people start at the “STEM”—Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education, that is.
This hot-button acronym has long been the hallmark of the Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision program, the world’s largest K−12 annual science competition, celebrating 20 years of motivating students to excel in STEM.

Students work in teams of two to four to envision innovative and useful future technologies that could make the world a better place. The four first-place teams each get a $10,000 U.S. Savings Bond and second-place winners each receive a $5,000 bond.
More than 287,000 students have participated in ExploraVision, which is sponsored by Toshiba and administered by the National Science Teachers Association, and serves as an integral part of science curriculums in schools throughout the U.S. and Canada.
For an application, visit www.exploravision.org or e-mail to exploravision@nsta.org. Follow on Twitter @ToshibaInnovate and www.Facebook.com/ToshibaInnovation. The deadline is February 1, 2012.
