The Xtreme Technology Event began ten years ago with participants from New York and Puerto Rico. During the event birth year, participation only consisted of schools in the Columbia area; however it has expanded into a national event. This is such a great opportunity to expose your high school-aged students to college level academic areas of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Another component of this event is to recruit high school graduating seniors to the School of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). To support our efforts, we strongly encourage you to register high school junior and senior level students.
In addition, students will also tour the campus and visit the "STEM Mall" a mall- like atmosphere with over 15 booths showcasing STEM-related clubs, organizations and programs such as Women in Engineering, Environmental Health Science Association, National Society of Black Engineers, National Organization of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineer, and Pre-Health Club to name a few.
This event is hosted by the School of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) at Benedict College. This is a transportation expense paid trip. Event Parameters and Itinerary will follow at a later date upon successful completion of registration
Today, I encourage you to register your school and team participants (not to exceed 6 per team-maximum of two teams per school) by Clicking "Register Now"
On behalf of the 2013 XTE planning committee and Dr. Samir Raychoudhury (Dean of STEM), thank you for your interest in this event and we look forward to meeting you on November 8, 2013 at Benedict College.
