Nontraditional STEM Careers Festival
Nontraditional STEM Careers
NW STEM Virtual Festival
Students in grades 6-8 in the NW STEM Region are invited to participate in the Nontraditional STEM Careers NW STEM Festival beginning on March 1, 2021 and ending March 31, 2021.
Parents and teachers can register their students from February 8-February 15, 2021 here: http://bit.ly/NontraditionalFest
The goals of festivals are to promote, inspire and engage youth in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities and to introduce students and parents to STEM careers in Northwest Iowa.
Additionally, our goal is to not let gender deter students from exploring a career they are interested in. This festival is free and entirely available online.
Presenters have supplied videos of themselves demonstrating a skill in their career and present a challenge to students to participate in a STEM challenge that relates to their career.
Upon registration, students will receive a STEM Challenge Kit with materials to complete a challenge related to our nontraditional careers. Kits will be delivered via AEA van systems.
