Imagine you are at a leading scientific and engineering company called eLabsInc.  Here at eLabsInc you will find imaginary students who are busy learning about how science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) are used in the real world. These imaginary students are conducting their own investigations and they are willing to share what they know with you.
