Kashmir World Foundation Takes Part in Loudoun County STEM Day

By Nicole Weatherholtz

Kashmir World Foundation was thrilled to be a part of the second annual Loudoun County STEM Day on Saturday October 1, 2016 at Northern Virginia Community College in Sterling, Virginia. Loudoun County STEM Day is a collaborative effort between Northern Virginia Community College, Loudoun County Public Schools, NOVA SySTEMic Solutions, and the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce. The event was free and open to the public and attracted hundreds of guests from the area. Loudoun County STEM Day is designed for students of all ages and exposes area families to opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math by featuring hands-on exhibits, workshops, music, and food in a fun and collaborative environment.

Kashmir World Foundation’s exhibit gave guests of all ages the opportunity to explore drones and learn how they can be used to impact wildlife conservation efforts. During the event, Dr. Ronald Pandolfi assisted Kashmir World Foundation’s newest team member, Nicole Weatherholtz, during her first drone build. This gave many children and their parents the opportunity to see how a custom drone is built firsthand.
