Emerging Pearls Foundation, Inc. annually hosts a diverse group of sixth through twelfth grade boys and girls, including our Emerging Young Leaders, for the annual S.T.E.M. Games Conference. In an effort to highlight educational enrichment and to boost interest and academic performance in the STEM disciplines, this free half-day of highly interactive workshops ultimately challenged the middle and high school students to get excited for STEM.
The games are designed to build teamwork skills, to challenge the students to work with their hands and minds, to think quickly and critically to solve problems, and to explore their talents and interests and learn about exciting STEM career opportunities.
