STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education is a pipeline to a better world — for students and for us all.
It’s a special opportunity to inspire a student to pursue a STEM career. Do you remember when you discovered the passion for the work you do today? Perhaps it was an exceptional teacher, an inspiring book or a relative in the same industry. We hope, someday, that many students in the Kansas City area can point to Burns & McDonnell Battle of the Brains as their spark.
“Students aren’t creating a product for a hypothetical environment or ’playing’ at being scientists. They must make a plan for a REAL product that will be right down the street from them should they win.”
