In Late November, we celebrated our 5 years of service and our newest annual STEM Week at the University Club in East Lansing, MI. Our Executive Director Kirk Riley spoke about who we are, our K-12 programs and how we plan to continue helping our community. If you missed out on the event or want to learn more, feel free to listen to the Michigan Business Network Business Beat Radio episode who featured ITEC in late December.
Mark your calendars for STEM Week, November 26-30!
Join ITEC and the Greater Lansing community for five days of exploring the importance and value of STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — to our region’s economy, growth and future.
Want to get involved? Please attend an event or three, forward this page to a friend, promote via social media using the #LansingSTEMWeek tag, make a donation, volunteer, and/or send your good ideas on how to grow this awareness event to firstname.lastname@example.org.
