“I love this question because it will help many people — you see, I stumbled into the tech realm a couple of decades ago.”
As a part of Engineers Week, Rockwell Automation and Cedar Point launched a series of five youth-focused videos called, “It’s Not Magic, It’s Science!” The first video featuring attractions at Cedar Point, a 364-acre amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, launched on social media this week.
Hosted by STEM influencer Jay Flores, the videos share real-life examples of science, technology, engineering and math in action. Each video includes three parts: an experiment, an explanation of the science behind the experiment, and an application of the same concept in a park attraction.
These are the subjects that keep the world turning. But STEM goes beyond classroom subjects or careers. It's a way of thinking about the world.
Fuel a cultural shift around STEM teaching and learning by integrating innovative (and no-cost!) digital content into the classroom anytime and anywhere with a diverse array of resources from Discovery Education and industry leading partners.
