R iver City Science Academy is bringing Jacksonville together once again to ignite a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math at the annual STEM and Health Expo
On Saturday, February 10, 2018 from 10:30 a.m.to 3:00 p.m., RCSA will host its 6th Annual Florida STEM and Health Expo. This hands-on event is unlike any other, breaking outside of the traditional booth to booth experience. The Expo features exciting science demonstrations, STEM educators and scientists, community health supporters, many vendor booths, food and fun.
The theme for this year’s Expo is “Preparing Florida’s future STEM & Health workforce.” The futures of Jacksonville, Florida and the U.S.depend on highly trained professionals in the STEM fields. We must engage students from an early age so they emerge as leaders in STEM. To achieve this, representatives from all over Jacksonville come together at the Expo to offer activities to students, teachers and the public. There is truly something for everyone to learn from and enjoy at this public event.
River City Science Academy is the first charter school in the district to receive an A grade and be named a high-performing charter school by the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE). RCSA offers a private school atmosphere in a tuitionfree,public school setting. The school’s leadership helped guide instructional focus in Florida’s integration of the Common Core Standards, and RCSA was deemed a showcase school by FLDOE and PCG Education.
Success like this comes from RCSA’s innovative approach and commitment to STEM. Students of diverse backgrounds and learning abilities use state of the art technology to learn in an interactive and structured environment. RCSA recognizes the impact of community involvement and actively enlists the help of leaders in STEM fields and beyond. Through college mentorship and internships, students gain invaluable support to help them achieve their goals.
The annual Florida STEM & Health Expo has become a symbol for RCSA’s success and a staple in the Jacksonville community. The mission continues this year as we seek to ignite the passions of another group of future leaders in STEM and Health.
Entry to Event is free and the event is open to the public. Visit www.flstemexpo.com for more information.
