MELBOURNE, FLA. — High school students, high-school-level home-schooled students and parents, guardians, teachers and/or guidance counselors are invited to Florida Tech’s STEMpower Day Nov. 8, a free celebration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics that offers participants memorable, hands-on experiences and a taste of the collegiate life at Florida Tech.
The event is held from 2:30-6 p.m. at Florida Tech’s Center for Advanced Manufacturing and Innovative Design, 2495 Palm Bay Rd NE in Palm Bay.
STEMpower Day is open to students from public, private and home-based high schools in Brevard County. Everyone attending the event must register.
