The Science Museum’s Science Fusion event series, presented by Donaldson Company, has a long history of celebrating the achievements of science professionals from populations that are traditionally underrepresented in STEM.
An important part of Science Fusion is the Donaldson STEM Award, which recognizes students who are achieving great things in science and leadership around Minnesota. Past winners have founded coding clubs at their schools, created mobile apps to bring awareness to social justice issues, mentored younger students, led Math League and Knowledge Bowl teams, participated in college level research projects during school breaks, and much more. They have demonstrated that an aptitude for science – and a passion for using it to make lives better – is the way of the future.
Do you know a high school student of color who shows promise in STEM? We want to hear about it. Nominate them for the Donaldson STEM Award today.
Donaldson STEM Award winners receive a $500 cash prize, a Science Museum membership, and recognition at one of the 2019 Science Fusion events.
This year’s Science Fusion series kicks off with the 27th annual African Americans in Science event on Saturday, January 12.
