On Saturday, August 1, 2009, Houston Style Magazine was on hand at the 2009 Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) program at Texas Southern University Science Center. This program provides middle school students who are interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, an opportunity to advance their knowledge during a four-week camp. The program provided participants real world experiences, hands-on activities focusing on science and technology along with engineering and mathematics, and a $200 stipend upon completion of the program. Presented by HoustonWorks USA and Shell, the students of the S.T.E.M. program shared their experience with attendees at the culminating activity for initiative. One who was very interested in the students’ projects and provided words of wisdom as the keynote speaker was NASA Administrator, General Charles Bolden.For more information about the program in 2010 visit www.houstonworks.org.
