Description

Careers in STEM are in demand, and opportunities are available for every student! This session will empower you to effectively communicate to a diverse group of students the breadth of opportunities and pathways in STEM careers. You will be challenged to consider student, parent, and community perception of your school’s “brand” of STEM, and identify areas for improvement to ensure that you are reaching and inspiring every student to consider a future career in STEM.
