This summer, employees at Ingersoll Rand's Davidson, N.C. corporate center welcomed 16 teachers, principals, and school counselors from across North Carolina for an event focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education. STEM Day was orchestrated by North Carolina New Schools as part of its vision to prepare students for careers in STEM-related fields. 

Educators and Ingersoll Rand employees came together to discuss the role of STEM in industrial businesses and provide insight on how science, technology, engineering and math are used in various jobs throughout a manufacturing company. Learn more about global trends and the outcomes of STEM Day.

About STEM Day
North Carolina New Schools created STEM Day to help educators in the STEM school network develop a deeper understanding of programs, learn about current research, and participate in activities with STEM professionals. These educators want STEM curriculum to include relevant experiences for students. To achieve this, teachers of all content areas must know about the real challenges professionals face. So they devote time to visit local employers and see STEM-related jobs in action.
