The third annual STEMLink Event comes to Normandale Community College on Friday, May 13 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, physics, chemistry, health sciences, engineering, engineering CAD, horticulture, fabrication lab, math, cybersecurity, computer science and more.
SBC has partnered with Normandale CC for the past three years to bring fifth grade 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. As a matter of fact, this year's event at Normandale was filled to capacity within the first 30 minutes of open registration even after we expanded capacity from 320 the first year to 430 the second year. This year's 500 participants will represent 31 different metro area schools.
