On March 15, Webster University’s School of Communications, in partnership with the Academy of Science - Saint Louis, hosted a FUTURE TREK event on exploring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in Communications Careers.

Local high school students from Normandy, Crestview Middle School, Rockwood South Middle School, Wydown Middle School, St. Louis Priory, Harrisburg High School, as well as other local students, got a chance to experience faculty-led, interactive learning sessions on the following media and technology topics: Audio Aesthetics, Visual Effects, How to Animate Using Technology, the Gaming Experience and Radio and Broadcasting.

During these sessions, students got the opportunity to experience the applications of technology in multiple media industries while designing their own game character, recording a track to a movie, getting behind the technology of radio broadcasting, animation and visual effects. They also had the chance to hear from current students at Webster University, who are pursuing degrees in the School of Communications.

The Academy of Science-St. Louis’s program in STEM Careers is made possible with the support of Express Scripts, Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, Emerson Charitable Trust, Maritz, and the Saigh Foundation.
