Learning Undefeated’s Drop Anywhere Lab will serve as the backdrop of the event, offering students, parents and teachers a preview of the immersive learning experience that will be serving Wilmington-area middle schools this year.
Participants under 18 years of age can participate in the STEM scavenger hunt and enter to win prizes including a Nintendo Switch, Oculus VR, and Lenovo laptop computer. Grand prize drawing at 5 PM!
This event is a partnership between Learning Undefeated, the WRK Group, and AstraZeneca, and represents the launch of a multifaceted STEM education partnership designed to engage local students with STEM concepts and careers through hands-on education and to introduce local teens to in-demand STEM careers located right in their own backyard. These new programs support the development of a Delaware STEM ecosystem, creating educational opportunities for teachers and students based on the leading-edge research and development taking place within the local community.
The event is free and pre-registration is not required. Masks are required in all indoor spaces, including the gymnasium and onboard Learning Undefeated’s mobile laboratories. Unvaccinated persons are encouraged to wear masks at all times, including outdoors.
