This summer, I had the opportunity to be an extern for Micron’s STEM program for teachers. The program is designed to help teachers learn about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and how to incorporate it into their classrooms.
I spent two weeks at Micron’s headquarters in Boise, Idaho. During my time there, I learned about the company’s history, its products, and its commitment to STEM education. I also had the opportunity to meet with engineers, scientists, and other STEM professionals.
One of the highlights of my externship was getting to tour Micron’s manufacturing facilities. I saw how computer chips are made, and I learned about the complex process that goes into creating these tiny but powerful devices.
I also had the chance to participate in several workshops and training sessions. These sessions helped me to develop my STEM skills and learn how to teach STEM concepts to students.
Overall, my summer as a Micron STEM extern was an amazing experience. I learned a lot about STEM, and I met some incredible people. I am grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of this program, and I am excited to use what I learned to help my students learn about STEM.
In addition to the technical skills I learned, I also gained valuable soft skills, such as teamwork, communication, and problem-solving. I am confident that these skills will be essential in my future career as a teacher.
I am also grateful for the opportunity I received from Micron and the STEM Action Center. It was an amazing experience to remotely work to participate in the program, and it gave me the opportunity to learn new skills that will benefit my students, as well as participating in Chip Camps to take STEM to underserved communities.
I would highly recommend the Micron STEM program to any teacher who is interested in learning more about STEM and how to teach it to students. It is an amazing opportunity to learn from experts in the field and to get hands-on experience with STEM concepts, as well as learning about a wide range of careers in STEM that a lot of students aren’t introduced to in a normal school setting.
I am excited to use what I learned at Micron to make a difference in the lives of my students. I believe that STEM education is essential for preparing students for the jobs of the future, and I am committed to helping them learn about this important subject.
