DetroitRedWings.com’s Josh Berenter penned an article about the Red Wings’ annual STEM Day, held at Little Caesars Arena on Monday:
Nearly 300 students from 10 Detroit Public Schools who are involved in the Future Goals program were invited to the Red Wings’ new arena Monday morning to hear from guest speakers about their STEM-related careers and engage in STEM-related Q & A sessions. The students also got to watch a live Red Wings practice and enjoyed a Little Caesars pizza lunch on the concourse.
“It’s an awesome opportunity. We’re so grateful to the Red Wings and Chevrolet,” said Detroit Public Schools Foundation president and CEO Pamela Moore. “It’s an awesome arena. The students learned about how the ice is made, how the stadium was built, the engineers behind the work, what they do every day. It was a day of learning and really a day of fun.”
Detoit Public Schools in attendance were the Academy of the Americas, Bates Academy, Harms Elementary School, Davison Elementary-Middle School, Mackenzie Elementary-Middle School, Clark Preparatory, Foreign Language Immersion and Cultural Studies School, A.L. Holmes Academy, Neinas Dual Language Learning Academy and Cooke Elementary School.
STEM Day guest speakers included Chevrolet vehicle performance engineer Miles Egbert, Little Caesars Arena operations manager Al Sobotka and Red Wings director of broadcasting and engineering Sheldon Nueman.
