CNY STEM Career Exploration Series
Studies have indicated that New York companies have more STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) jobs than they can fill. To address this issue, Partners for Education and Business helped organize seven career exploration events that were held at local high schools and hosted by local businesses.
Anoplate, C&S Companies, King+King Architects, Optanix, Schneider Packaging Equipment, SRC, and United Radio all delivered presentations describing current careers and job progression to students ranging from middle school to high school. Students were often challenged with an activity that illustrated the use of STEM in conjunction with each company’s focus. The sessions were very well attended and as a result, will be expanded next year to twelve sessions.
