UW-Stout’s STEM Fest Welcomes Local High School Students
40 high school students will be visiting UW-Stout from the College Bound Math & Science program and Upward Bound West program - both programs serve students from low-income backgrounds in Northeast Wisconsin who will be first generation college students. During STEM Fest, the students will be attending presentations, going on a tour, and obtaining hands-on experience learning about the electrical connections between biology and engineering.

About 40 high school students from six northwestern Wisconsin schools recently visited the University of Wisconsin-Stout to participate in hands-on workshops at STEM Fest.  

As participants in the Upward Bound program, the students have the opportunity to explore what colleges around Wisconsin and Minnesota have to offer through tours, hands-on learning experiences and engagement sessions. 

UW-Stout welcomed the students with two workshops that demonstrated what a polytechnic university has to offer for degree programs and future careers in STEM — science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  

The students were from Barron, Hayward, Shell Lake, Siren, Turtle Lake and Unity. Through these hands-on experiences, they got a glimpse at what UW-Stout has to offer and could imagine see themselves studying in a university lab, doing on day one.  CLICK HERE TO FOLLOW THE ACTION.
