Virtual STEM Field Trip with an Olympian

Olympic swimmer Katie Ledecky wants students in grades 3–8 to take a deep dive into game-changing tech and get excited about STEM. Ledecky, in partnership with Panasonic North America and Discovery Education, has launched the STEM Forward educational initiative, which includes activities for families and students, and tools for teachers. The premiere field trip, which took place virtually on January 25, 2022, transported students to five Innovation Centers around North America, where they got a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the everyday inspiration Panasonic’s engineers and scientists use to power groundbreaking new ideas to improve people’s lives. Key to the initiative is advancing educational equity. The program works especially to inspire students of color and illustrates how certificates or two- or four-year degrees can lead to STEM careers.
