Teaming up to equip future scientists
Support for education in science, technology, engineering, and math is needed more than ever. However, many communities and schools lack the budget or the tools to effectively conduct classroom programs in STEM. Thermo Fisher believes exposure to hands-on learning in these subjects is essential to our shared future. Our customer, South Dakota Biotech, shares a similar view and in 2017, we partnered to build 800 STEM-credible safety kits at their annual summit. Our teams helped to source the materials included in the kits and collaborated with the summit attendees for their final assembly. Members of a local Boys and Girls of Club of America were invited to participate in hands-on science activities where they received our donation of the safety kits to take back to their club.
