Vegas STEM Lab
The team of investigators from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas will employ a mix of on-site and in-class activities to introduce students to science topics and engineering methods in the context of the entertainment and hospitality (E&H) industry that is the lifeblood of Las Vegas.
The Lab will help middle school students of grades 6,7 and 8 to overcome prevailing beliefs regarding the STEM disciplines as boring and difficult. It will boost students’ confidence as STEM-capable individuals and expose them to the exciting STEM careers available in their hometown. The activities will cultivate STEM identity development and encourage students to pursue STEM pathways.
