Think of fire, explosions, roller coasters, helicopters, science, and fun! Students and their teachers from high schools in New England can experience STEM through hands-on experiments and workshops at the German-STEM-Immersion Day at the University of Rhode Island (URI). The event features prizes, competitions, opportunities to speak German in an immersion setting, and to meet other German students from throughout New England. A highlight of the day is the workshop “No fear of science!” by German science entertainer and author Jo(achim) Hecker. STEM immersion day is supported in particular by alumni and current ambassadors of the German International Engineering Program who have studied and interned with German companies for one year and have returned from Germany with great passion for their fields of studies in both engineering and German language and culture.
