"Define your roots and branch out to awesome careers."
STEM-U-LINK™ is a career exploration fair for minority 8th - 12th grade students but ALL are welcome to attend. It is an opportunity for middle and high school students to meet college students enrolled in STEM-related degree programs, and professionals in the STEM field. We want you to "Define your roots and branch out to awesome careers". This event is designed to stimulate STEM interest that will fill the pipeline to produce more black engineers and STEM professionals.
High school courses such as algebra, calculus, and writing are an integral part of becoming a STEM professional. Seeing each phase of the process of becoming a STEM professional and helping students believe they have what it takes to become one is our primary objective.
