different format, continuing to celebrate STEM in this community, and offer learning
opportunities to all that participate.”

contributions and inspire their future leaders” says board member Anne Hamlin. “It’s also a great
opportunity for local students to see what STEM careers look like on the other side of their
classes and graduation.”
