Normandale Community College will host its fourth annual STEMLink event for fifth and sixth graders on campus on Friday, May 12 from 8:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.
STEMLink brings STEM careers to life as fifth and sixth grade students participate in three sixty-minute interactive sessions on a college campus in college labs with professionals from the fields of biology, chemistry, computer science, dental hygiene, dietetic technology, engineering, exercise science, health, math, nanotechnology, nursing and vacuum and thin film technology.
Success Beyond the Classroom (SBC) has collaborated with Normandale for the past three years to bring students to campus for a day of STEM exploration and discovery in the labs and classrooms. The program involves Normandale's STEM, Education and Health Science faculty along with other outside STEM professionals. There is a huge demand from the schools for STEM programming. This year's 500 participants will represent 23 different metro area schools.
