“Geared Up: Futures in STEM” will give children and adults the chance to gear up for a career in STEM by ‘becoming’ a scientist, nurse, meteorologist, pilot, or other STEM professions while learning through play.
The “Geared Up: Futures in STEM” will feature two to four learning “pods” on a rotating basis designed to immerse guests in STEM fields. Guests will create, play, and learn as they explore the concepts of science, technology, engineering and math utilized in these local careers with an emphasis on career opportunities in the Texas Panhandle.
The exhibit is currently showcasing the Meteorology and Broadcast piece. Guests can look forward to exploring additional STEM careers coming soon. “Geared Up: Futures in STEM” is a dedicated area at the Discovery Center designed to expose children and families to STEM careers in a fun and engaging environment and learn about local STEM industries.
