PRESCOTT, Ariz. – The STEM Outreach Office at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Prescott Campus is pleased to announce the launch of new virtual outreach programs for the fall 2020 semester. The program temporarily takes the place of in-person visits while still providing opportunities for “hands-on” student engagement. The mission of the program is to provide students with opportunities for enrichment and discovery in the STEM fields while assisting educators in expanding content taught in their classrooms.
The virtual program complements science, math, and other STEM-based curriculum. Offerings include planetarium presentations, tours of facilities, hands-on demonstrations using basic household items, math-themed problem-solving scenarios, and mini-courses in Embry-Riddle programs. Educators can shape their ideal virtual experience through a reservation form and conversation with STEM Outreach staff. The program can also be tailored for educators using distance (online) or hybrid learning styles with students participating from home.
“Our goal is to create an experience for local students that instills a passion for knowledge and discovery without even having to leave the classroom— with no bus required,” said Embry-Riddle Lead Student for STEM Outreach Koby Yoshimi.
Sessions will begin on September 1st. To learn more about STEM Virtual Outreach Program offerings, details and reservations, please visitprescott.erau.edu/about/stem-center/tour-info.
