STEM Day 2018

STEM Day Boxlight

2018 Boxlight STEM Day
February 16, 2018 will mark the second annual Boxlight STEM Day (#BLSTEM). Students will work with their classmates in a hands-on, inquiry-based learning event designed to help them learn critical STEM skills and understand how STEM disciplines apply to the real world. The participating schools will perform simultaneous experiments and share the data to observe the relationship between speed, time, and distance. 

Why Have a STEM Day?
We created this event to raise awareness among local schools and industries about inquiry-based learning and the benefits of STEM education. It’s one of the ways in which we can help students to develop the critical skills that will prepare them for life beyond the classroom, enabling them to be tomorrow’s engineers and innovators. And the Labdisc gives them a taste of the types of tools that they’ll use in a STEM work setting!
