Speakers Bureau teacher teaching high school students.

Speakers Bureau

We send our STEM expert faculty to your classroom to inspire tomorrow's leaders.

Inspiring Young Minds About STEM

Our mission is to capitalize on the unique talents of the Rose-Hulman community to inspire high school students to pursue a future in STEM. To do this, we want to build strong relationships with area high school teachers and bring STEM lectures and demonstrations to their classrooms. Most importantly, we hope to inspire young people about science, engineering, and mathematics and help them begin to imagine their full potential. 

Our guest speakers offer active lectures, demonstrations, and lab activities on topics aligned with the Advanced Placement high school curriculum in biology, chemistry, physics, and calculus, and the Project Lead the Way engineering curriculum. Your students will enjoy an exciting and interactive STEM lecture that will spark creativity and fuel their STEM passion!
