Highlights from the Successful 2014 2nd Dow Great Lakes Bay Science and Engineering Festival!
This incredible STEM opportunity -- the Dow Great Lakes Bay Regional Science & Engineering Festival returned to the Delta College Main Campus on September 26-27, 2014 and proved to be even more exciting than in 2013.
On Friday, September 26, 2014, and Saturday, September 27, 2014, Delta College hosted the 2nd Annual Dow Great Lakes Bay Science and Engineering Festival. This two-day event focused on rekindling an interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) among area students through activities that brought the “WOW” of STEM to life! Friday was middle school day and there were more than 3,500 students, teachers and chaperones that attended this free event. Saturday was open to the public and many of the students returned with their parents to share the exciting demos they had experienced the day before and to explore other exhibits that did not have time to visit on their first day.
The event was a shared collaboration among Delta College, Michigan Technology University, The Dow Chemical Company, Nexteer, General Motors, Bay Area Community Foundation, Saginaw Community Foundation, Consumers Energy, and the Michigan Department of Transportation. In addition, over 40 different groups from higher ed, non-profits, corporations, and other groups dedicated themselves to provide students with a non-traditional educational experience. It was a huge win for STEM, for area students and for Delta College.
