Science came alive for 96 fourth graders from Tavares Elementary School as they built bridges and competed in science challenges during a free field trip at Orlando Science Center on December 6, 2013.

The day began with a discovery lab in which students teamed up and designed a bridge to withstand the heaviest load. After that, they ventured to the exhibit floor to apply the engineering skills they learned in the lab to solve problems and evaluate results.

Through a $75,000 grant, Duke Energy will help bring more than 3,500 students from its service area to the Science Center to engage them with fundamental engineering principles, excite them with STEM topics and inspire them about future careers.

A giant thanks goes out to Duke Energy for their involvement and support to encourage STEM learning. See what the first field trip accomplished in the video and slideshow below!

As a platinum sponsor of the Summer of Dreams program, Siemens is helping to bring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education to homeless students in Central Florida.

In partnership with Orlando Science Center, Siemens engineers volunteered to lead an interactive, hands-on Discovery Lab that featured in-depth design challenges based on engineering principles. One of the projects taught participants how to build a load-bearing bridge.

Now in its third year, Summer of Dreams was founded to fill an unmet need for food, shelter and supervision for homeless students when school is not in session. The program provides two meals a day, activities, school supplies, academic and STEM-enrichment, and mentoring — as well as financial counseling for parents, offered by founding sponsor Fifth Third Bank.
