We are proud to again sponsor the QMS 8th Grade STEAM Career Day on Monday, March 27. QMS teachers are hoping to recruit many different individuals and/or businesses to help students connect their studies in science, technology, engineering, art, and math with real-life research and careers. If you know someone who would be willing to come to QMS to do a fun presentation about their career and life experience to 8th grade students, please complete this form and return to QMS science teacher Mary Chmielecki.
This year’s keynote speaker is Val Vigoda, an electric violinist, singer, writer, former Army lieutenant, and founding member of the band GrooveLily. She has toured the world with Cyndi Lauper, Joe Jackson and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and has created a live-looping multimedia project, Just Getting Good. Ms. Vigoda has won the Jonathan Larson Award for Excellence in Musical Theatre, the LA Ovation Award for Best Musical, and the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) Richard Rodgers Award. She studied at Princeton University and has taught at Stanford University, Emerson College, and the Berklee College of Music.
