Crash in the Classroom: Our STEM Partnership with Walker County Schools
The Crash Creative crew had the exciting opportunity to speak with sixty of Ridgeland High School’s brightest students about the tech world and their potential futures within it. These 10th-grade students are currently participating in the school’s STEM program, where they are learning the foundations of coding and computer language. According to the STEM Coalition’s website (stemcoalition.org), “The central mission of the STEM Education Coalition is to inform federal and state policymakers on the critical role that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education plays in U.S. competitiveness and future economic prosperity.” Our goal with this partnership is to show students that the tech world isn’t dull and boring – it can be vibrant and exciting.
This is the first installment of a two-year program. We’ll be meeting with the students and faculty twice each semester. We’re excited to build relationships with these students and, hopefully, foster a passion for their futures.
