Call for Career Day Presenters – Feb. 11

We will host our annual E-STEM (Environmental Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Career Day on Tuesday, Feb. 11!

We are looking for a few more presenters to come in for the day and talk about your STEM career to middle school students. Presenters will deliver two sessions of about an hour each, with about 25 students in each session. Ideal presenters work in a STEM field with an environmental focus. Presentations will focus on your own background, what brought you to this career and how you got here, details of the issues you get to deal with in your job, and information about the tools and processes you use. If you’ve never done this before, or if you’re unsure about how to create and deliver such a presentation, Hazel Wolf teachers will be happy to work with you to develop it. We especially encourage women, people of color, and immigrants to join us. Our kids need to see that STEM fields aren’t just for white American males – engineering our way through the world’s tricky problems happens through all our efforts, and we want our kids to see themselves reflected in the professionals who have taken on this challenge.

Contact Joe Fogarty to volunteer or ask questions.
