5th Annual Career STEAMposium
The 5th Annual Career STEAMposium will take place on Saturday, March 20, 2021 from 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM. This VIRTUAL FREE event is themed STEAM CROSSES ALL COLOR BARRIERS AND NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE!
STEAM pervades every part of our lives and career opportunities in these areas are growing by about 14% per year. In order to be gainfully employed, it is important to have skills that people are willing to pay to gain access to. STEAM professions are the jobs of today and the future. Many high paying jobs in these areas continue to go unfilled because there is a gap between workforce skillsets and job requirements. If we want to close this gap, we need to encourage our future workforce to pursue careers of the future which are in STEAM.
The Career STEAMposium exposes Middle School to Community College students to Professionals in all aspects of STEAM careers – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. During the day, students will attend workshops, learn from and ask questions of STEAM professionals and participate in hands-on activities that include Robotics, Cal Poly Pomona’s Formula SAE car, Cal Poly Pomona’s Liquid Rocket Lab, NASA/ JPL’s Mars Sample Return Project, What goes into the making of a Guitar, How Games Are Created and Biosense Webster – Biology/ Dissection. STEAM crosses all color barriers and never goes out of style!
