STEM Genius and Cass Technological High School students will teach STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills to 9th grade MI GEAR UP students in Brody Hall at Michigan State University on Saturday, March 29.
STEM Genius, an innovative program using creative and exciting project-based learning, and Cass students will team up with MIGU students from Detroit, Jackson, Lansing, and Albion schools to learn about Amusement Park Physics. The students will design and build amusement park model rides to experience hands-on learning, where they use their imagination to create an Amusement Park Project. This project consists of learning about the history of amusement park rides, the physics and engineering behind them, designing and building models and careers within the STEM industry.
