Fathom has announced that they are dedicating their July 17 Dominican Republic cruise to STEM, or the study of science, technology, engineering, and math. The cruise line wants to increase interest and build confidence in the topics among young adults and children, who may end up pursuing a career in one or more of those areas. Fathom will also host this year’s Clean Tech Competition, a challenge for pre-college youth.
The week-long sailing will equip grade-school educators as well as teacher education college staff members with tools they need to further the emphasis of STEM in their curriculums. The voyage will also cater to school kids that want to pursue their interest of the technical studies outside of their classroom.
