Title: STEM Mobile Explorer Tours
Abstract: The STEM Explorer is Delta College's custom 38 ft mobile outreach vehicle. Primarily used to impact the region's youth, faculty, students, teachers and industry partners collaborated to develop the modules used by students to explore STEM topics. The vehicle will make over 100 visits a year to schools in the Great Lakes Bay Region, as well as offer professional development for teachers and summer camps for disadvantaged youth over the summer.

The tour will include a presentation on the different approaches we use with middle schools and high schools as well as what we have learned embarking on such a large project. You will also have an opportunity to interact with a few of the hands-on modules we have developed and experience STEM in a new way.
