Webster University was well represented at the 2015 STEM Extravaganza at Hazelwood Central High School last weekend by representatives from the departments of Audio Production Audio Aesthetics & Technology (led by department chair Barry Hufker), Math and Computer Science (John Aleshunas) and Biological Sciences (Victoria Brown-Kennerly and Stephanie Schroeder).

The event drew approximately 1,000 K-12 students and their parents.

The district organized the event for all K-12 Hazelwood school district students. Younger students experience a variety of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) games and activities. Older students have opportunities to discover more about careers in STEM-related fields. Local universities and colleges provide information about STEM educational programs, while local businesses and industries spotlight STEM-related careers.

Webster faculty activities in these different areas of STEMM were very hands-on, attracting large crowds to the Webster tables continuously throughout the event.

“This was a great opportunity for community STEM engagement,” Schroeder said. “We look forward to participating again next year.
