envision your future
May 24, 2012 • Bridgewater State University • Free Event
Imagine a group of students on an interactive journey using a flight simulator – watch as they create a battery using lemons – join as they build an underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) – observe as they use statistics to create the best offensive unit of a new NFL team – assist as they learn to check and record the vital signs of a newborn.
These are just a few of the activities to take place at the 2012 STEM Expo, Envision Your Future, at Bridgewater State University. 500 students, grades five through eight, are expected to participate.
