STEM Skills in Demand
Changing workforce demands require a greater fluency in Science Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Traditional jobs increasingly integrate new technologies while high-demand and high-growth jobs are trending toward advanced STEM skills. UVBEP’s STEM Presentations connect high school students with business leaders to expose youth to the changing requirements of the workplace and provide ways to show how their interests may link to opportunities available within our community.
“Students became aware of how the math and science in school are relevant to jobs. They also became more familiar with a local, yet national, company that exists right in their own community.” - Classroom Teacher
STEM Presentations for 9th Grade Students
STEM Presentations are offered as part of UVBEP’s Continuum of Career Development available to students in grades K-12. The program is timed to reach students early in high school as they select course options, pursue career and technology education and consider a range of post-secondary opportunities. Early exposure to skills used in STEM fields informs student decision-making as they navigate their career and education pathways.
“I thought the presentation was cool, I learned a lot about how many different jobs there can be in one workplace.” - High School Student
STEM Presentations Connect Employers to Schools
“Our hope is to give you perspective on what we have done, to help inform you on your school and career planning.” - Volunteer Presenter
