Over one-thousand students in grades seven through 12 will be at St. Cloud State University on Thursday for the fifth annual Science Technology Engineering and Math Summit, also known as the STEM Summit.

The summit will feature over 40 exhibits and presentations, including a 25-foot-diameter video dome called the ExploraDome. The portable dome is used to teach students about the solar system in a planetarium like setting.

One of the presentations will be by Jane Snell Copes. Copes presents under the name Professor Sepoc and applies her knowledge of inorganic chemistry and science to teach and entertain students of all ages.

Copes has planned a collection of different experiments for Thursday’s summit. Some parts of her presentation will be based on the magic and potions in the Harry Potter book series. While reading the first book in the series, she found that she could recreate some of the book’s magic spells with science.

According to the media release, Minnesota’s U.S. Senator Al Franken is expected to do a video welcome message from Washington, DC.
