The Career Day series supports efforts to increase student interest and performance in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Career Day programs are designed to spark student interest in various STEM-related careers through virtual field trips into various days in the lives of our experts.
The series ties in student exercises or experiments relevant to the topics in order to make the experiences more tangible for students. Career Day guests give on-the-job examples of equipment or methodology used in their careers and talk about the STEM fields of study involved. Students are given information about the kinds of courses they would need to take in school if they were interested in pursuing careers in any of the fields.
