The North American International Auto Show recently held in Detroit was the site of unique learning opportunities for about 5,000 of Detroit's youth. Students learned about career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math, including design and mechanics. "We're trying to open up their minds to S.T.E.M. and how science is not just the study of cells," said Jason Cady, teacher of the pre-engineering program at Oxford Middle School. "It's things we use everyday -- the chairs, the cars. There's someone who thinks about those things, how they improve them, how they make our lives easier. We're trying to get them to buy in and do this."
