Operate on your next chicken or turkey dinner, taking a moment to examine the vertebrae of the neck or hinge joints of the wings.  Discuss oil-eating bacteria in the Gulf on the way to swim practice.  After the big game, calculate how much the university football coach earns per game or per hour.  Sound like weird family activities?  Reconsider!  Future careers, as well as daily life decisions, will increasingly depend on a firm grounding in math and science.  Set your kids on course for a bright future by helping them prepare for their STEM-based world!

Rivermont Collegiate is excited to present Parent Talk, featuring industry experts on education topics.  The October session will feature guest speaker Pat Barnes, Program Director for John Deere’s new STEM initiative, John Deere Inspire.

Join us to explore why STEM is critical to our community, what STEM initiatives are happening in the Quad Cities, and how to get involved and spark your child’s interest in STEM.

Rivermont Collegiate is the Quad Cities’ only private, independent college prep school for students in preschool through 12th grade.  For additional information, contact Rachel Chamberlain, Director of Admissions and Marketing, at 563-359-1366 x302 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
