Your Future STEM

The Your Future STEM program presents job industries that are poised for growth to help middle school students understand different pathways and job opportunities within STEM-related careers. The program aligns with curriculum that students are already learning in their science and math classrooms and includes interactive discussions about educational pathways and real-world application projects in industries like advanced manufacturing and engineering.
