On August 22, 2017, TechTerra Education, a leading STEM education company in Durham, NC, participated in the Rowan-Salisbury School System (RSSS) Conference. TechTerra Education founder, Susan Wells, spoke on “STEM Solutions for All, Supporting Districts and Schools in their STEM Journey.”
The RSSS has been recognized nationally for work in STEM and digital learning and TechTerra Education is proud to have partnered with them for 3 years to support STEM education for all students. TechTerra Education held a nuts and bolts STEM makerspace session at the conference and provided the tools to let attendees explore robotics, coding, electronics and circuitry, micro-controllers, augmented and virtual reality, and invention kits. “Educators had a chance to get hands-on with STEM tools,” said Wells. “The chance to explore STEM resources and think about how to create inquiry-based activities for the classroom is fundamental to TechTerra’s guiding principle of STEM equity for all.”
“It was great to see so much excitement for STEM,” said Wells of TechTerra Education. “We are looking forward to continuing our work with RSSS educators throughout the school year.” RSSS serves over 19,000 students in 35 schools and is the second largest employer in Rowan County. This year’s conference was held in China Grove, NC, at the South Rowan High School.
