Field Trips and Worksite Tours

Host field trips for PK-12 students to engage in and explore STEM-related spaces (on-site or virtual). 

Expert Talks or Demonstrations

STEM experts share their experiences leading up to entering their career and what it is like working as a professional in their field in a formal presentation or through an informal setting like a lunch and learn. 

Job Shadowing

Provide opportunities for students and educators to shadow a variety of STEM professions/jobs within the organization.

Immersive Experiences

Offer STEM-based practicum, internship, and/or apprenticeship opportunities for students and educators. 

Outreach

Host STEM community events and/or educational programs for PK-12 students, families, and educators. Programs might include showcasing different technologies within the industry, design challenges on site working along side STEM employees, or issuing students a problem from their industry as a design challenge for students to solve and present their solutions back to the industry. 

Advocacy

Engage in STEM advocacy efforts through informing, communicating and engaging with local and state political representatives or legislators, other industry leaders, local community leaders, educational leaders, and the greater educational community about industry and workforce needs and educational/training needs to develop the STEM workforce.
