Chief Science Officers
Laveen schools elect 13 students to participate in a state-wide STEM program. Chief Science Officers serve as STEM ambassadors and promote STEM programs. The purpose of the institute was to help CSOs learn how to advocate for STEM on their own campus.
What is a Chief Science officer?
Laveen CSO’s attended their first cabinet meeting at Estrella Mountain Community College. During the cabinet meeting CSOs received leadership training, worked on their action steps, and learned about hands-on STEM resources from the Sci-Tech Council.
CSO Charles, CSO Reyna, and CSO Nikhil helped to promote the CSO program during a Laveen Education Foundation Business Breakfast. CSO Charles, and CSO Nikhil gave brief speeches explaining the CSO program and inviting participants to participate in an upcoming CSO event. All three CSOs led table discussions.
