First, there was Hour of Code. Now there’s Siemens STEM Day. A makeover of the traditional Siemens Science Day, the new event is intended to encourage teachers to spark student interest in new forms of science, technology, engineering and math. The event, which doesn’t have a specific day assigned to it yet, comes with the chance to win a $10,000 “possibility” grant for use in creating a new fab lab or outfitting the classroom with gadgets. Promoted by Discovery Education and the Siemens Foundation, the STEM Day website offers 134 activities to be used in the class, which can be filtered by grade level, STEM category or career path (energy, healthcare, IT and manufacturing).
