NAS Jacksonville is proud to offer a STEM2 area at this year’s air show!
What is STEM ? “STEM” stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics. In Northeast Florida, STEM2 Hub recognizes the vital role medicine will play in future careers, so they have added a second M for Medicine, or STEM2. You may also see “STEM+C”, the C is for Computer Science, a critical underpinning in just about every industry and a high-demand career in itself.
will be offering the following activities in the Kids Zone:
Science | Technology | Engineering | Mathematics | Medicine
• Exploring Careers in Space: Participants will learn about the emerging careers in aerospace and space. Participants will think about a problem on earth that they could solve with access to space, or what it might be like to live and work in space. They will illustrate a postcard expressing their ideas.
