Waters Introduces STEM Live: The Science of What’s Possible for Kids

By April 6, 2020


In an earlier blog, we discussed how the skills that students develop in science, technology, engineering and math—disciplines collectively known as STEM, are more important than ever. At Waters, we are actively engaging in global, on-site STEM-focused training programs for young students through collaborations with NGOs like Junior Achievement. These programs often include classroom-based learning, experiments, job shadowing and site tours.

But now, with so many students learning remotely, how can we continue to inspire and educate the next generation of STEM professionals?

Waters’ scientists, technologists and engineers from around the globe have come together to offer a solution with an exciting new series, Waters STEM Live: The Science of What’s Possible for Kids. Our employees will conduct engaging experiments for kids of all ages* on Facebook Live every Wednesday throughout the month of April.

An overview of each experiment and the list of common household goods needed will be released the Friday prior, please monitor the event page for updates. If you are unable to view the experiments live, they will be be made available on our Facebook page. You can also access our STEM Live library here.

At Waters, our goal is for all students, regardless of circumstances, to be prepared for the future and exposed to the inspiration and opportunities that STEM provides. We hope that you’ll join us and get excited about science!
