Boston, MA, 02/27/2014 (usastockreport) – Micron Technology Inc. (NASDAQ:MU) and Discover Technology have planned to launch a new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Mobile Discovery Lab. A bus specially designed for young kids and elementary and middle school students it has some distinct feature which would encourage young people to the world of science. It has interactive science models and programs which will try to generate interest among students. It’s an effort from the company to produce more future scientist.
The lab provides an opportunity for the students to see how the real world of science looks as their knowledge is only limited to the school book texts. In they can know how the magnet looks, Robotic programming, Sound waves and many other interesting things and activities which would encourage students from an early age in science and technology.
The mobile STEM lab is running by the Micron Foundation a nonprofit organization established by Micron Technology Inc. (NASDAQ:MU). This is new grant program by the foundation to help the young kids in experiencing the real world of science and technology. 50 schools in each year will get benefit from this program and it is expected to rub for two Years.
Future scientist and Engineers
Dee Mooney, executive director of the Micron Foundation said their primary aim at the Micron Foundation is to generate a passion for STEM education in the younger generation. This program is aimed at helping Young kids in pursuing their dream of becoming future engineers and scientists. He further said that they are excited to team with Discover Technology for enabling this mobile STEM lab. It will help them in accomplishing their task.
Two other STEM Mobile Discovery labs are being already operated by Discover Technology and it proving very helpful to the kids. It is giving them opportunity to explore the depth of science in the actual lab.
This is a great initiative by Micron Technology Inc. (NASDAQ:MU) foundation as science plays an important role in development of any society. If an interest for science is developed among kids from an early age there is every possibility that we may get another Edison, Newton or Faraday among these kids.
