Through a series of four interactive workshops, students will get to meet the U-M faculty or alumni who work in the STEM related fields every day. They are also given tools to help them take charge of their educational future and given assistance in setting realistic goals to get them into STEM fields in college.
The program begins with a U-M campus visit in Ann Arbor for each student and one caregiver. A bus will leave from Canton Public Library at 9 AM on Saturday, April 26. After a visit to a working science lab, campus tour, lunch with faculty and students and presentations by U-M admissions staff, the bus will return to the library around 3:00 PM.
In order to win you need to do four things:
- Pick up the 2-page hand-out at the circulation desk and complete it.
- Create a map of your spy route.
- Keep a journal/notebook of your own and make a spy entry everyday.
- If you used spy gadgets, write about them in your journal.
All entries will be judged by our expert spies. They will be looking for all four items to be completed, originality of spy route map and uniqueness of daily journal entries.
Looking for ideas? Check out the library's Harriet the Spy display, books and videos.
Happy spying! Don't get caught!
