Young AFCEANs Advocate for STEM Education

In June, the chapter’s Young AFCEANs participated in a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Career Day Program hosted by Walt Whitman Middle School in Alexandria, Virginia. The Young AFCEANs presented 20-minute STEM presentations to students with the purpose of enlightening the students about the significance of math, technology, science and engineering and how it plays a prominent role in all career fields. “The earlier students learn and master these skills [STEM], the greater the chances of college acceptance, job security and innovation,” stated Ashley Becker, chapter vice president, small business. In the past four years, the chapter has been recognized for supporting schools in their surrounding communities in the form of grants, scholarships and technology equipment to support educational growth in the STEM programs. “Many students at that particular age have to be sparked in the area of science and mathematics, whether it is a cool volcano experiment or 3D printer and AFCEA can provide the means to get that spark,” commented Daniel Shaer, chapter vice president, Young AFCEANs.
