During the summer of 2014, Eastern North Carolina STEM students participated a field trip that was hosted by Biogen at their Community Lab in RTP (Research Triangle Park). Students conducted a gel electrophoresis lab in order to solve a genetics problem regarding the probability of inheriting hemophilia. This field trip exposed our students to STEM careers while also providing them the opportunity to work with state of the art technology. Eastern North Carolina STEM is grateful for Biogen's generosity in hosting this field trip free of charge for our students, and we look forward to working with them in the future.
During the summers of 2013-2016, Eastern North Carolina STEM students have taken field trips to the North Carolina State University's Challenge Course located in Raleigh, NC. Students and teachers participated in a half day of team building exercise and challenging high ropes obstacles. This field trip fostered collaboration and encouraged students to test their boundaries and trust of their peers. Eastern North Carolina STEM is grateful for NC State's willingness to work with high school students, as they typically serve college aged students and above. The willingness of NC State to discount their prices for high school students has made financing these field trips more feasible, and we again look forward to challenging our next cohort of students at the NC State Challenge Course.
TRU Deli located in Chapel Hill, NC has provided discounted brown bag lunches consisting of gourmet sandwiches and snacks for our NC State Challenge Course field trips in 2013-2015. Eastern North Carolina STEM is thankful for TRU Deli’s willingness to discount prices and work with us to make our field trips possible for our students and we look forward to working with them in the future.
In 2017, Reser’s Fine Foods catered for our Community Night, providing a variety of food for our students and their families free of charge. Eastern North Carolina STEM appreciates Reser’s Fine Foods’ generosity in providing food for one of our biggest events of the year and we look forward to working with them in the future.
If you are interested in hosting a field trip for 60-80 students or catering an event from June 15th, 2018 through June 30th 2018, please contact Dale Hammer at firstname.lastname@example.org
