STEM-A-THON: Stevens Institute of Technology Invites Hoboken 8th Grade Students to Explore Innovation
Stevens Institute of Technology will host its third annual STEM-a-thon: Discovery, Innovation & Success for Hoboken’s 8th Grade Students on Wednesday, January 24 from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
Hoboken’s budding scientists and engineers will experience the fun and excitement of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Over 300 Grade 8 students from all nine of Hoboken’s public, private and charter schools will discover how to innovate through various hands-on, team-based STEM activities, take advantage of their high school years to position themselves for success in college, and explore STEM and other college majors.
The “STEM-a-thon: Discovery, Innovation & Success for Hoboken’s 8th Grade Students” is sponsored by Stevens Institute of Technology in partnership with the Hoboken Family Alliance.
“Stevens is proud to host its third STEM-a-thon in partnership with the Hoboken Family Alliance and Hoboken’s public, charter, religious and private schools. The event brings together 300 8th graders for a day of hands-on discovery and innovation with the goal of igniting interest in and widening perspectives of the opportunities available through a degree in science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” said Beth McGrath, chief of staff and director of government and community relations at Stevens. “The event has become a favorite of the Stevens community, and an opportunity for Stevens students to share their excitement about STEM with younger peers from the schools in Hoboken.”
