STAMFORD, Conn. — A group of Stamford students and teachers will trade their classrooms for the White House on Wednesday for a celebration of all things STEM.

Two Stamford teachers and four Stamford students will head to the Eisenhower Executive Office, a part of the White House complex, to watch the fourth Annual State of Science Technology Engineering and Math Address.

Stamford High School teacher Susan Dougherty was invited to the event because of her work with the NASA LEARN, a program that allows “innovators from outside NASA to perform research, analysis, and proof-of-concept development of their novel idea,” according to NASA.

Dougherty is bringing five guests: science teacher Kristen Amon, and students Jostin Colon, James Zhan, Matthew Bagan, Christopher Aranda.

The event will feature Dr. John P. Holdren, assistant to the president for science & technology and director of the office of science and technology policy, according to the school district.

In 2014, Holdren was joined by eight NASA astronaut candidates and students from Washington, D.C., area schools for his speech.
