2016 Highlights

Connexus Association supported several new organizations and events during 2016.

 One of these events was Michigan Technological University's Mind Trekkers STEM Road Show.  Northcentral Technical College hosted the event, the 2nd Wausau Science and Engineering Festival. Undergraduate and graduate students from Michigan Tech located in Houghton, Michigan brought hands-on-learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to  local 6-8th grade students the first day and welcomed parents, high schoolers, and other community members on the 2nd day.

 Another organization the Association sponsored for the first time in 2016 was the STEM Scouts. The Samoset Council in Wausau, WI was one of twelve councils chosen across the country to launch the STEM Scouts Pilot Program.  The program anticipates reaching over 2,000 youth through community outreach events utilizing the Vortex Mobile Lab and using hands-on activities.
