In conjunction with its 2017 Air & Ground Expo, the South Carolina Air National Guard will be hosting STEM Day for students in 5th through 12th grades on May 5 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at McEntire Joint National Guard Base in Eastover.
The free event is an opportunity for students to experience a field study of exhibits focused on math, technology, engineering, physical science, environmental and bio science, aerospace, robotics and more. Students will have the chance to get up-close and view the inner workings of aircraft and technology.
The SC Air National Guard and its partners, the Air Force Association (Palmetto Chapter), STARBASE Swamp Fox and technology sponsors, hope to build excitement for STEM careers and education by telling the backstory of air, space and cyberspace, and empowering students to learn more.
In addition to the exhibits and events on STEM Day, parents are able to download the SC National Guard’s mobile app to explore STEM topics with students at home. The app can be downloaded here.
