LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - While it may be the weekend, it was still a fun filled day of science, technology, engineering and math at Henry Clay High School Saturday in Lexington.
The high school held a STEM day, sponsored by the University of Kentucky College of Education’s Department of STEM Education. STEM day is a free, family oriented, hands-on experience with STEM content to engage curious and creative minds of the K-12 students who attended.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
The day was also a great experience for the UK students running each booth as they were able to interact with students and parents, while also giving the future teachers ideas once they move into their career
Brittany Guido is a senior at the University of Kentucky focusing in mathematics and a pre-service teacher who stated, “It’s really awesome to see cool opportunities and activities that you could do in a class room and that I could do in a classroom and get that stem focus while still doing math things.”
A teacher with Henry Clay also mentioned that high school students also volunteered at the event to help share their experiences with STEM.
