EASTEC Dream !t Do !t® Manufacturing Student Challenge
The EASTEC Dream It Do It Manufacturing Student Challenge event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students, educators, school administrators and guidance counselors to see first-hand the cutting-edge technology displays at the show while reinforcing the importance of increased STEM education in schools. The visit to EASTEC is not just a technology show; it is a chance to stimulate technical interests in young people. It is an opportunity to eliminate the antiquated stereotype of manufacturing and STEM–related careers, and to bridge the gap between education and industry.
The high school student challenge will take place on Thursday, May 16, 2013. Invitations will be sent to schools that have curriculum that meet specific science, technology, engineering and mathematics criteria. Teachers will submit an abstract on behalf of the students that provides the name of the challenge, contact information, and the name of the manufacturer the team/individual student is partnering with. The submissions will be reviewed by a committee. Based on the review, up to 350 students will be invited to participate in the challenge. Student teams can be no less than 3 and no more than 6 students (not including a teacher).
