STEM Speaker Series Kickoff!

Archeology is not just about dinosaurs! This statement came from McKenzie “Mack” Corey, a Ph.D. candidate at Indiana University and the first speaker in this year’s St. Louis School Stem Speaker series. Mack talked with our Sixth Graders remotely as part of the Skype in the Classroom program. Our students learned about his background, his education, basic archeological techniques and the process of deciding where to dig. Mack also described how to examine the artifacts that may be found and how they help connect us to our history. We are thankful to Mackenzie Corey for spending more than an hour with our students, answering many relevant questions and encouraging them to continue pursuing careers in STEM. We would also like to thank Microsoft and their sponsorship of Skype in the classroom for the opportunity to learn from a variety of working STEM professionals. #BeaKnight
