Conversations: Inspiring Tomorrow’s Scientists

August 20, 2020
5:15 pm - 7:00 pm

The need to feed and power a growing, changing world, while also preserving the environment, is the greatest challenge of the 21st century. To meet the challenge, we need the best and brightest minds in STEM: science, technology, engineering, and math. Join Kris Callis-Duehl, PhD, Danforth Center’s Sally and Derick Driemeyer director of education, and St. Louis Public Radio’s Sarah Fenske, host and producer of St. Louis on the Air, for a conversation about the future of STEM education. Try on cutting-edge AR/VR equipment, learn about the use of this technology in the classroom and how hands-on exploration invites students to see themselves as scientists today. (Rescheduled from March.)
