IH&S employees educate students on importance of STEM education
January 16, 2019
Students from the Boys & Girls Club near Rochester, New York, visited the IDEX Health & Science Semrock facility to learn about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) last month.
Several engineers and a product manager planned and hosted the event which included a tour of the robotic production floor and examining biological samples using Semrock filters and microscopes. Students also learned about career opportunities in the STEM disciplines and about team members’ professional backgrounds.
The Boys & Girls Club of Rochester provides youth development programs that allow young people to gain the skills and qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. To continue supporting the youth development programs, the IDEX Foundation also donated $5,000 to the organization.
