Deadline Approaching For Summer Workshops

The first workshops hosted by Tennessee Tech University’s STEM Center start in June, and the deadline is approaching for those sessions. For high school students who will be in grades 9 through 12 this fall, the center is offering “Autopsy a Shark” on June 8 and 9. Students will explore the anatomy of the shark and compare it to the anatomy of the perch. Students interested in careers in the health sciences are particularly encouraged to attend. Meanwhile, students who will be in grades 5 through 8 next fall can learn about robotics in the LEGO Mindstorms workshop on June 3 and 4. Middle school students can also get a head start on next year’s science and engineering fair by attending a workshop June 9, 10 and 11. Students will select a topic, begin research on the topic, and develop a design for their study. The deadline to register for these workshops is Wednesday, May 19.
