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.
“BOTB has helped me as a teacher by forcing me to turn over decision-making to the students. The value of having kids work on a project with real life stakes and applications is priceless.”
