Save Thursday night, February 12 for #STEMchat on Twitter. Thanks to our sponsor Georgia-Pacific we’ll be sharing ideas to encourage pathways to engineering careers. #STEMchat will take place from 9-10 PM Eastern.
We’ll be talking about the E in STEM, Engineering. Some of the most plentiful STEM jobs involve engineering, but the field is about more than just gears and bridges. Engineering is about creating solutions. Join in for #STEMchat as we share ideas to get kids involved in engineering, tips for building skills, and resources to foster their passion in the topic.
Follow our great panelists to stay in the loop:
