What will I get to do at STEM Career Day?
Students will get to try their hand at various STEM-related tasks led by representatives from over 50 local businesses and universities. A large group hands-on activity will challenge students to apply their engineering talents to the solution of problem, while working together as a team.
New in 2016, students will have the opportunity to choose between two itineraries. Younger students who are interested to learn about STEM fields can join our "STEM Explorers" track. Older students who already know they will pursue STEM but have college and career questions can join tour "STEM Careers" track.
Attendees also get a free lunch and t-shirt for their participation in the event.
