Topic:  STEM in The Triangle

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math: Four words that make up a term that has become the buzzword associated with education over the past few years. Everyone knows today's students need an education that's rich in STEM, but how is our community going about making that change a reality? At this month's RTP 180, you'll hear from speakers that are in the trenches and actively working to impact today's young minds through a variety of different community programs and initiatives.

The show starts at 6pm, but the doors open early for those that would like to grab a local brew before the speakers begin. See you then!
