Senator Gillibrand Unveils Agenda to Boost STEM Education While Visiting Wings of Eagles Discovery Center
On Monday, March 31st, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand visited Wings of Eagles Discovery Center to announce her innovative education agenda encouraging more youths, especially women, to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The agenda will bolster engineering education programs across New York’s elementary, middle, and high schools and encourage the development of computer science career education programs that meet the market needs of employers. During her visit Gillibrand also toured the Discovery Center and interacted with students from Horseheads Intermediate School who were taking part in Hurricane Alert, a hurricane tracking simulation where 5-8th graders use STEM skills to make recommendations to solve the crisis and take appropriate disaster response steps.
