Long Island STEM Career Expo
Monday, November 14, 2016 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Location: Cradle of Aviation
Description: The Cradle of Aviation is happy to announce its 6th annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Career Expo! The STEM Expo is a great opportunity for your 10th and 11th grade students to make connections with company representatives in STEM industries. The best part, these companies have roots on Long Island!
In recent years, local companies have had a difficult time finding employees who fill their workforce need. Why? Young adults are leaving Long Island for higher education opportunities elsewhere, and as a result hunt for employment in those regions. To bridge this gap, the Cradle of Aviation Museum seeks to introduce students to careers right in their backyard!
The STEM Expo is the perfect venue for students to be introduced to and prepare them for the careers of tomorrow by establishing a foundation to develop 21st century skills and achieve the new heights in education needed for success.
Pre-registration is required. Teachers are encouraged to RSVP for their students as soon as possible.
