Michigan Tech Mind Trekkers

Getting Students Ready to Win at Mind Trekkers

Students learn to enjoy STEM through hands-on activities

On March 22, students from the central Upper Peninsula converged at Gwinn Community Schools to take part in the OneUP Mind Trekkers Tour: Superior Shores Festival. The Mind Trekkers team, a highly-educated group of Michigan Tech students, has been traveling the Upper Peninsula getting students excited about STEM and STEM-based careers through hands-on demonstrations. This event, the third stop of this tour, drew in over 500 students!

UPMatters and TV 6 were on-site covering the event. Check out the coverage from both outlets at the links below:
