STEM CAREER EXPLORATIONS

Women and minorities are substantially underrepresented in a number of STEM fields in the United States.  According to a study by the Bayer Corporation, women and minorities are missing from the STEM workforce today because they were not identified, motivated, or encouraged to pursue STEM careers as youth. 


STEAM ONWARD's  Career Explorations Sessions contribute to providing youth with positive attitudes toward engaging in STEM activities. The Career Sessions (Download the STEM Career Sessions file below) we provide a series of opportunities for middle and high school age youth to increase their awareness that STEM topics and careers are accessible to people of all genders, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
