LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Imagination Station in Lafayette is wrapping up Black History Month with a STEM day celebration.
On Saturday, the science museum leaders led an event called "Pieces of We." Many students of all ages came to learn about black trailblazers in the field of STEM.
They learned about those paving the way in the past and present. They also learned how they can be a part of the future of STEM.
Students made models, created algorithms through hip-hop music and drew a mural.
Event coordinator, Tikyna Dandridge said it's important black-students see their culture in STEM.
“Through our culture and the things that we do but also arts too because we all have a culture but sometimes it does not show up in the engineering curricula,” said Dandridge.
This is the first time Imagination Station has hosted this event.
