Local leaders visit SAHS to encourage STEM careers

March 31, 2017

Students at Stillwater Area High School learned first-hand about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers from the people who actually work in them. A dozen local professionals from MnDOT, 3M, Chandler Exhibits, DiaSorin, and Lift Bridge Brewery visited students in their Project Lead the Way (PLTW) class. They took part in a STEM version of speed dating. The professionals rotated from table-to-table for a quick five minute Q&A from students (What is your job, what do you like about your job, what is most challenging, etc). It was a fun and quick way to get exposure to a number of STEM careers in their own classroom. They even had their own SnapChat filter for the event. For more pictures visit our Facebook page.
