X-STEM Phoenix Workshops
Not only did students get to hear from an inspiring group of STEM professionals but students also had the opportunity to get hands-on with STEM in special workshops!
taught students about innovative technologies used in drug delivery systems including 3D-printing technologies, plastic molding, and 3D computer tomography.
The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office
took students through a forensic overview of Latent Fingerprints, Exemplar Collection, Presumptive Blood Testing and Robotics. Attendees got to learn about the whys and hows of a few law enforcement forensic tactics, such as how to properly dust smooth or nonporous surfaces with fingerprint powder, obtain a reaction from stains on cloth material, and the proper way to do an exemplar collection. They also learned about how robotics are used at a Law Enforcement capacity, along with getting to meet two of Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office robots face to face.
Did you know that new cars today have more computer power than the space shuttle? Students at X-STEM Phoenix learned just that! TechForce
showed attendees how the world of tech and hands-on careers goes way further than the classic wrench. From circuit boards to volt meters, they spent time using hands-on activities to understand the intersection between technicians and technology on the ground and in the air.
Thank you to all of our wonderful workshop hosts for bringing STEM to life for our X-STEM Phoenix students!
