STEM All-Stars Project

STEM professionals are always welcome in classrooms. Their stories about real-work and life experiences can bring classroom learning to life. To better connect teachers with STEM professionals, STEMpact2020 is creating an online listing of profiles of STEM professionals in Wichita called the STEM All Stars Project.

Teachers, simply click on the profile of the STEM All Star to find out if their topic will be a good fit for your classroom. Once you have found a speaker of your choice, submit a request by filling out the form at the bottom of the STEM All Star’s profile. A STEMpact2020 staff member will reply within 2 business days to coordinate details.

STEM professionals, want to become an STEM All-Star? Learn more here and fill out the form to have your profile listed on our page!
