How it works: Contact us by phone or email. We will coordinate a convenient date with you and head out to your school with 5-7 different STEMM professionals! Each person will speak about their career and we will leave time at the end for students to get up, get hands-on with objects from the careers, and get to know the professionals - including setting up mentoring/job shadowing opportunities! Each talk takes about 75 minutes and student group sizes are flexible.
We are currently scheduling in-person speaking events for Fall 2023 and Spring 2024!
Mentors, college resources and potential job shadowing opportunities exist year-round, contact us to learn more!
**New locations/dates coming soon!
