“Very interesting and cool... I want to get my degree in mechanical engineering or materials joining engineering, but this expanded my horizon on options. Thank y'all for a fun AND educational video series.”- Student from Texas
“X-STEM provided a unique and engaging career exploration week for students. We can't wait for the next experience!” - Educator from Illinois
Not only do most STEM careers represent the jobs of the future, but statistically entry level STEM jobs pay 26% more than other college degree required entry level jobs. In addition, STEM fields tend to have more job opportunities for qualified applicants than other career fields. Speaking of “qualified applicants”, there are STEM fields that require a bachelor’s degree or higher, but many only require certification or vocational training.
Because STEM careers incorporate such various education requirements, fields of interest, and job descriptions, how do you know which is right for you?
Exposure to the numerous fields of STEM and the diverse people who work in them is the best way to discover your interests and be encouraged that you can succeed anywhere you want to go!
That's why X-STEM was created:
X-STEM All Access is an entertaining, educational online STEM experience for 6-12th graders. Through a series of daily, live streamed events students will hear from a diverse group of visionaries who aim to inspire kids about careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. Tune in September 21st-24th 2021 or watch on demand!
Join our moderator, Justin Shaifer (Mr. Fascinate), for a STEM adventure with new, engaging speakers, brain breaks, and special guests each day of the event.
