STEM Programs Exposition
This area will feature booths for students to visit and find out from universities, laboratories, companies and others how to identify and apply for internships, mentorships, scholarships and after-school programs in STEM.
We encourage professionals representing these opportunities to have appropriate brochures, pamphlets, application forms, websites and other resource information available to distribute to visitors.
The Festival Expo also welcomes representatives (i.e. Human Resources and hiring managers) from companies, universities, government agencies, laboratories and other entities who are recruiting for STEM-related job opportunities. Adequate booth accommodations will be available.
We would especially like students (including those at the high school, undergraduate levels) to learn about available opportunities in such cutting-edge careers as renewable energy, robotics, mathematics, nanotechnology, virtual reality, clean technology, genetics, medical research, life sciences and education.
SPECIAL PROGRAM: Meet The Scientists & Engineers
Students can conduct in-person interviews with scientists and engineers, in what we like to call "speed dating of science"! Scientists/Engineers Encounters will give students the unique opportunity to interact one-on-one with a role model scientist and/or engineer in an informal environment.
The goal is to give students a glimpse of the day-to-day lives of scientists and what is going on in cutting-edge research today.
