Howard University Host STEM Best Practices for Public Schools in DC

Dr. Anthony K. Wutoh, Provost of Howard University in Washington DC kicked off the first ‘Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Best Practices’ Forum of the USA Interdisciplinary in the Research Building in Washington D.C. The Panel for STEM BEST PRACTICES included from Dr. Ashitey Trebi-Ollenu, NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, Fernando Hernandez, Microsoft Executive, one of the Sponsors of the Event, Dr. Edward Tunstell, NASA Scientists from John Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, Dr. Thomas Mensah, Fiber Optics Inventor who assembled the Panelists.

Students from the Washington D.C. area schools were at the event to take part in hands-on demonstrations of robotics and drone technology in addition to meeting several young ladies from Spelman College in Atlanta.

Children met NASA Scientists who designed the Robot that went to Mars to bring photos from the Red Planet to our planet as well as an inventor of fiber optics and drone experts. This is an experience that will stay with them forever.

“We hope that other Scientist around the country will be encouraged to help our High Schoolers to increase their Scholastic Aptitude Tests and inspire them in STEM,” shared Dr. Mensah. “One of these kids may get into the NASA Astronaut program for a trip to Mars or design machines that go to Space.”
