STEM refers to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and their connectedness. Dr. Chao will discuss storytelling in mathematics and give examples of how parents and teachers can use storytelling to get children to see themselves as mathematicians. Dr. Orban will share his groundbreaking work in STEM coding, including the Hidden Figures coding challenge that connects Katherine Johnson, history, and coding. There will be time for questions, interaction, and discussion with members of the audience.
