MilliporeSigma is trying to spark interest in science careers this week with a traveling science lab that was once a shipping container.
The business, a life science company with facilities in Milwaukee, is visiting the community with its Curiosity Cube. The vehicle is a 22-by-10 foot retrofitted shipping container that MilliporeSigma is using to give students experiences and tools in STEM fields – that is, science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Sending your children off to university or college and starting the next chapter of their lives is an exciting time for both you and your kids. Whether they’re in first year or a returning student, with all of the academic stress they’ll be facing, the last thing you want is for your child to worry about running out of money during the year.
Disney Aspire is the most comprehensive program of its kind, offering hourly employees a wide array of disciplines and diplomas—with tuition paid upfront.
BURBANK, Calif, September 10, 2018 /3BL Media/ - In January of this year, Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced an initial $50 million investment in a new and ongoing education initiative aimed specifically at The Walt Disney Company’s hourly workforce. “I have always believed that education is the key to opportunity,” he said. “It opens doors and creates new possibilities.”

To help fill a pipeline of future scientists and engineers, many teachers in the St. Louis area are “stemitizing” — integrating science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts into all school subjects.
One such effort, STEMpact’s Teacher Quality program, trains 150 kindergarten through eighth-grade teachers on how to incorporate the concepts into their curriculum in hopes of building early interest in STEM careers.
Benjamin Mays, mentor to Martin Luther King, once said: “He who starts behind in the great race of life, must forever remain behind, or run faster than the man in front.” Mays’ comments were made in the context of the 1960s civil rights movement in America, but could just as easily apply to inequalities today—and with regard to our digital future.
Pharmaceuticals and biosciences company MilliporeSigma is stopping in Laramie this week to showcase its “Curiosity Cube.” What used to be a 22 by 10-foot shipping container is now a mobile science lab with interactive experiments. The Curiosity Cube allows kids to experience different technologies like high-tech microscopes, virtual reality, and 3D printers.
