Buford STEM Night

2018 Bezos Scholar Cole Fairchild and educator Matt Shields are passionate about science, engineering, technology, and mathematics (STEM). They created Buford STEM Night to engage and excite Charlottesville, VA middle school students about STEM. Through the hands-on STEM night they want to encourage increasing the diversity of STEM students in courses at the high school level.

The first annual Buford STEM Night was open to all students and featured 10 unique, small-group workshops designed by UVa students, Charlottesville High School students, and local tech firms.
