What is STEM Day at APU?
Sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Center for Research in Science, 6th-12th-grade students from throughout Southern California attend a day of exciting classes on a variety of STEM topics taught by APU professors and students and other experts in those fields. Some classes are structured to help Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts meet many of the requirements for their merit badges, but all students are welcome and will enjoy the rich learning experience in a fun, hands-on environment utilizing APU’s state-of-the-art equipment.
Exact classes offered vary from year to year but may include topics such as geology, engineering, robotics, biology, and chemistry. And event attendees receive a special event T-shirt.
Special thanks to the APU faculty, staff, and students who volunteer their time to teach and assist! We also thank the experts from the San Gabriel Mountains Regional Conservancy, the RailGiants Train Museum, and Barnabas Robotics.
