MILWAUKEE, September 23, 2021 /3BL Media/ - Rockwell Automation joined the Milwaukee School of Engineering and other corporate leaders this week to celebrate the grand opening of the We Energies STEM Center at MSOE. The new center is the premier STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) destination in Milwaukee for K-12 students and provides students from any school—public, private, charter, and homeschool—access to interactive, one-of-a-kind STEM experiences.
Hispanic and Latinx cultures have helped define American society for centuries. Yet today there’s an immense demographic gap in the Latinx community in STEM-related fields. With the impact that this proud, diverse culture has had on the United States, why don’t we see more members of the Latinx community in STEM? While there’s a variety of factors that contribute to this gap, the solutions are fairly straightforward.

This summer, the Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™ expanded its seven-year collaboration with the American Association of University Women (AAUW) to provide summer camps focused on engineering to more girls around the country. In partnership with Thinkabit Lab, AAUW's Tech Trek summer program engaged more than 200 girls living in California. This inspired AAUW in Florida, New Mexico, and Washington to pilot the Thinkabit Lab Wearable Tech project in their Tech Trek camps this summer.
We believe every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full academic and professional potential.
Canadian Catherine Gelmini was 9 years old when she started FIRST® Robotics competitions. As a teen, her Dow-sponsored team, the Cyber Eagles, competed in the world championships three years in a row. Now, at 20, Gelmini is working at Dow’s Fort Saskatchewan facilities this summer while pursuing a career in science and education.
Her dream: to be a teacher and start her own robotics team.
Last year we embraced connected learning to implement the Qualcomm® Thinkabit Lab™ Program. This allowed us to engage 100% of our national network of collaborators. Together, we served the largest number of students in the history of our summmer invention-based program. Through our weeklong camps, students discovered careers available at tech companies, engaged in hands-on engineering activities, and collaborated to create an Internet of Things-inspired invention.
