Testing Impactful Ideas in the Real World
One of the most exciting challenges that those interested in STEM face is putting their ideas to the test. Will the hypothesis prove true? Will the prototype work as hoped? And that's part of what makes our programs that bring young people and STEM professionals together to address major challenges so exciting. From tackling wildfires to malnutrition to the future of aerospace, we've seen some amazing solutions. This month we're focused on bringing together generations of scientists and budding scientists to drive the future of STEM.
As a reminder, here are some hashtags you can include in your posts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or other preferred social media channels:
- #IAmNYAS - When sharing your own or other Academy Members' stories.
- #STEMHorizons - For posts focused on the future of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and how STEM can address society's challenges.
- #FutureofSTEM - For posts focused on young people in STEM.
