Journeys in Engineering, Technology and Science

Saturday, December 4, 2010

Event Information

The Journeys in Engineering, Technology and Science event seeks to energize middle school students about careers in science and technology while relating the presentations to the middle school science curriculum. The event will also provide information regarding academic pathways and programs available to students in order to be prepared to join the workforce in science and engineering industries. Parental participation and follow-up communications such as newsletters and website resources will strengthen the impact of this experience for students.
Target Audience
All middle school students from Montgomery County Public Schools will be invited to attend. We will market this event to them through science teachers, counselors, and various school district events. In addition, their parents, teachers, and school counselors will be encouraged to participate.
One of the key target groups is those students in middle school that may not be planning to attend college or even consider a scientific career. Approximately 40 percent of those that attended last year were from this population.
Technology companies and agencies will provide interactive sessions for students and parents on interesting careers in STEM and how students can stay engaged in scientific curriculum.
