Chief Science Officers Logo


 Bridges Elementary is an AZ STEM School Community of Practice
 Our Chief Science Officers are comprised of five 6th grade students, elected by their peers, who are empowered to influence a wide range of STEM opportunities in their school and community.
On Campus They:
  • Build the overall appeal and "buzz" of the school's STEM opportunities
  • Serve as the "STEM voice" in supporting programming such as speakers, field trips and science nights. They ensure the opportunities reflect the interest of their peers
  • Engage the student body in conversations about STEM
  • Serve their schools' point person for external experts and organizations

Off Campus They:

  • Participate in local and state conversations on STEM, education and workforce such as panels, discussions, talks, workshops and blogs
  • Comprise a statewide "cabinet" and engage in civic action projects with their peers
