Jacksonville, FL: River City Science Academy is pleased to announce SharedLABS as the presenting sponsor of their 7th Annual Florida STEM & Health Expo, to be held on February 9th, 2019.
SharedLABS CEO Jason Cory says, “SharedLABS is proud to take a leadership role in the Florida STEM & Health Expo. We are committed to championing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education here in North Florida, from K–12 classrooms and beyond. Our goal is simple: to help students and teachers get the tools and access the resources they need in order to take advantage of every opportunity STEM offers, and to raise awareness of the importance of STEM focused education in our economy and society as a whole; and the best part is that this clearly fuels our driving vision as a company, which is ‘to create value through technical excellence and innovative solutions, which empower our customers, employees, and communities with improved intelligence, agility, and better overall results.’ We love that this STEM Expo provides us an opportunity to connect with the communities we live in, who share a focus on creating a better future through education in the areas that we anticipate will have the greatest impact in our business over time. The experience alone is rewarding, and knowing that we are living our vision is truly exciting!”
The annual expo serves as an alternative to the typical county fair. It allows students to get a chance to showcase their STEM work in a fun and unique way, with learning opportunities for the entire family. RCSA’s mission for the expo is to expose Florida’s citizens to the exciting and engaging world of STEM and health to ignite their interests and motivation for these disciplines. This free, one-day event features exciting science shows, STEM educators and scientists, robots, community health supporters, the fire and police department, and more! Over 100 tables will be set up with exciting STEM projects and hands-on activities. For sponsorship or vendor information, and to learn more about this event, visit www.flstemexpo.com.
