Dates: June 14th to 16th, 2017.

Location: Preston Middle School, Fort Collins, Colorado

SES will be held in conjunction with the STEM Institutes (elementary and middle school).

Why do so many students get excited about science and engineering but lose that interest?  Do students of color access STEM?  Why are girls not pursuing STEM studies? These are questions of interest to educators, business leaders and other decision-makers across the county.

The world has some big challenges!  Increasing the availability of clean energy, providing enough food and clean water for an increasing world population, designing for upcycle, space for humanity are all problems for which science, technology, engineering and math can help provide solutions.
