Brickmania Tampa Bay
March 22, 2014 - 2:00 pm
Carrollwood Day School
Open to the community
On Saturday, March 22, 2014, CDS will host BrickmaniaTM. This unique community-wide event is designed to spark the interest in STEM activities for students in kindergarten through eighth grade and to introduce them to career possibilities within the exciting areas of STEM. BrickmaniaTM consists of hands-on activity tables, STEM exhibits and demonstrations from the community, and a LEGO® contest.
STEM Education - Why is it important to your student?
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education is a growing academic initiative among corporations and educators in the country. Careers within the STEM fields are on the rise. Even if a student does not go directly into the STEM field, chances he/she will have a career that indirectly revolves around STEM.
We already have commitments for exhibits from
- USF CARRT Center for Robotic Rehab Technology
- USF Marine Science: Satellite Imaging
- USF RPAL Robotic Perception Action Lab
- USF Marine Science: Rover in A Bag
- USF Bio Med
- USF Chemical Engineering Club
- Florida Farm Bureau
Can you picture your child's enthusiasm to be introduced to a robotic arm, computer simulation, or marine rover? These types of exhibits will ignite the minds of our next generation of innovators and inventors. We hope you will support this CDS fund raiser and academic program.
