    Keep on Trekking

    How do you get to wow?With Michigan Tech students (and increasingly, alumni) in yellow jerseys. Cool experiments designed to make kids give science a second (or first) look. And a passion to take those experiments anywhere in the country.
    Cody Kangas, director of the Center for Educational Outreach, says it's a program—with more than 175 experiments and demonstrations—and a 10-year track record of reaching thousands of students across the country with an unwavering message: STEM is incredible.

On the cover: The Wow Factor—Explosions. Bananas. Liquid nitrogen. How Mind Trekkers create a love for science in the next generation.
