This group is aimed at discovering and solving the unmet needs in STEM and STEAM education in the Richmond Virginia metro area (RVA).
STEM = Science Technology Engineering and Math, add arts and you get STEAM
We are committed to inspire the love of science and curiosity in children especially from disadvantaged income groups. We are looking for STEM professionals, teachers, business leaders and people that recognize the need for STEM education for the future growth of the Richmond metro area.
We are looking to connect people that are doers and want to help set the groups direction to accomplish concrete goals. However we also want people that just want to participate in events or be kept in the STEM-Ed loop. Please let us know when signing up. This can change when you wish.
Possible events include tours to Rolls Royce, Flexicell (a robotics factory), the USA Science Festival in DC, creative destruction classes, robotics and electronics. Goals may include making science kits to sell or even a permanent RVA STEM lab!
Our group is open only to people over 18 years old. While parents may bring children to an event they must be accompanied by a guardian over 18.
