'I want to be a scientist:' DC elementary students learn STEM thanks to a nonprofit

Students at Garfield Elementary School in Washington, D.C. are taking a hands-on approach to learn STEM with a DC representative.
DC Representative Oye Owolewa, pharmacist, is volunteering in DC elementary schools with a nonprofit organization called RESET (Raising Excitement for Science, Engineering and Technology). The experiment comes at no cost to the school or students.
“I want them to learn about very engaging concepts, things that I learned about in college," Owolewa said. "I want to expose them at a young age so that by the time they are exposed again they can really see themselves becoming a doctor and a scientist."
