Who's ready for a Science Road Trip!

Imagine spending 6-months traveling the US and Canada to experience all that this continent has to offer. That is what Mark and Stacie along with their two children are doing. Both teachers from two different Axia FibreTowns, Mark and Stacie are taking the learning out of the classroom and into the real world. The two are documenting their travels so their students can follow along at home. In addition to educating students about the science around them, they are connecting students with experts in various STEM (science, technology, education, and math) occupations. By bridging the gap between students and scientists, they hope to make science real to their students and promote a future in a STEM career.
