GEAZLE BRINGS STEMers TOGETHER
Explore STEM Knowledge, and transform the future through collaboration.
Geazle is a voice for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), to facilitate, stimulate the promotion of new discoveries, and innovation in STEM for national and international benefit, and to involve and engage the general public.
"STEM education fosters creativity, invites diverse points of view, promotes entrepreneurship and offers appropriate role models for all. To drive the economy into the 21st century, there is a sense of urgency to equip the future generation with the skills and experiences that will prepare them to be leaders" said Milton Bertrand.
"Geazle is a place for people of all ages and interests who simply want to gain knowledge," Milton Bertrand said.
“It (has) been put upon us to make better contact with non-scientists in the community,” said Marc E. Freeman, distinguished research professor of Biological Science at Florida State University. “People who are not in science have no idea what’s going on, but they’re paying the bill. A site such as this is very useful — it tends to water down what is hot, tell them what is hot, but do it in everyday language.” Geazle encourages people who are not completely dedicated to the STEM disciplines to join, because of the opportunity to gain knowledge from the experience.
