The University of Louisiana at Lafayette will host Science Day for Upward Bound Math Science high school students from 1st generation and low income backgrounds on Monday, November 25th beginning at 8:30 am. in the Student Union Ballroom, presented by STEM NOLA. The purpose is to expose and inspire students with the opportunities and possibilities available in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

By involving college students who are specializing in STEM-Based studies, as well as corporate volunteers as instructors and mentors, students are afforded the opportunity to see themselves as STEM-Based career participants.

Developed by Tulane University engineering professor, Dr. Calvin Mackie, the program uses project-based activities, and hands-on designed learning to “Expose, Inspire, and Engage” students in grades K-12.
