MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas, March 27, 2018 /3BL Media/ - According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) sector is growing faster than any other in the U.S., yet there are more STEM opportunities than there are students to fill these positions.
This 22x10-foot, retrofitted shipping container that has been transformed into a mobile science lab is featuring hands-on science experiments to "spark" interest in STEM.
A few experiences students will observe and participate in include learning about the role of DNA in living things and the importance it plays in deciding traits (why you look the way you do) and characteristics. Visitors will use touch screens to extract DNA and precipitation and "virtually" interact with cells.
