Free STEMcredible Laboratory Safety Kits

Over the next four years, STEM jobs spanning Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are projected to grow twice as fast as jobs in other fields. However, there is a significant shortage of qualified candidates to fill these open positions. How can we prepare students to close that gap? How do we get those students interested in science?

Thermo Fisher Scientific & Pittcon believe the answer is in the bag!

 

Thermo Fisher will provide teachers and students with STEMcredible kits containing lab safety equipment. It’s part of a formula that could light the spark for these students to one day become the scientists that help fulfill our mission of enabling our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner, and safer.

As the world leader in serving science, Thermo Fisher is committed to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers by providing access to learning in an interesting and safe environment.
