RI STEAM Day – March 21, 2018

RI STEAM Day : The Southeastern New England Defense Industry Alliance (SENEDIA), is sponsoring RI STEAM Day at the RI State House
Wednesday, March 21, 2018 from 3-6pm

RI STEAM Day will highlight the numerous initiatives of excellence in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) education, throughout Rhode Island. Schools, students and programs are being invited to showcase and promote their work and their talents, bringing awareness to the various STEAM opportunities across the state, that are available to students and their families. These programs are preparing our students to be career ready to meet the future workforce needs of business and industry.

Parents, students, teachers, administrators, local and state leaders, representatives from industry, and community partners, are all invited to attend.

The event will include interactive displays throughout the state house rotunda, that will be informative and allow for student and family engagement. A portion of the program will acknowledge excellence in RI STEAM, by state leadership.

Promoting and supporting our RI STEAM education eco-system, is critical to our RI economy. By developing our future innovators, critical thinkers and problem solvers within our state, and providing them with the necessary skills, we are creating our leaders of tomorrow.
