Welcome, students! We think you have made a wise choice today in choosing to spend some time with us at the STEM Expo! Whether you are a student who has mapped out your future and is setting your plans in motion or a student who doesn’t quite know yet in which direction you want to go, we have people here who can help you.
We have two distinct experiences awaiting you: One is the Expo Hall where we have gathered representatives from over 50 businesses and educational institutions who have engaging activities for you to try and lots of people on hand to answer your questions. The other is panel discussions where we have selected leaders of industry and education who will share valuable insights into their professions.
We hope you will use your time strategically: While we do have a few requirements for you to meet, we have left a lot of what you get out of this day up to you. Will your time be better used by attending an extra panel discussion where you will hear from industry and education experts or by spending more time in the Expo Hall where you have freedom to investigate and network with over 50 businesses, technical colleges, and universities?
Our rules are very simple: Please act professionally and appropriately while you are here. This includes remembering to clean up after you eat. And yes, lunch is provided!
We do have a few requirements…
Investigation, Strategic Thinking, Problem-Solving, Planning, Exploring, Critical Thinking, Questioning
We want you to start with a plan of action, but we also encourage you to explore. To investigate. To look at things with an open mind. To ask some really good questions that are important to you. And most importantly, know that people are here because they truly care about your future!
