BENEFITING: METROPOLITAN EDUCATION COMMISSION
EVENT DATE: Feb 11, 2015
STEM education is the key to the economic future of our high school students
The Key to Employment has inspired students to pursue college, science, technology, and 21st Century careers. It provides high school students with an opportunity to meet industry professionals, ask about what kind of classes they should take, what kinds of careers are available to them and the exhibitors tell them about their personal stories about how they got into the STEM fields.
Some of the highlights that the kids commented on include "I got to go to the U of A," and "I got to talk to U of A Engineering," and "I got to talk to the Eller Management Program." The biggest excitement comes from the students touring the campus for the first time.
Your donation allows more youth to attend and learn about hi-tech careers that are available to them. Let's show our students that they can be a part of the 21st Century.
