STEM Night: Getting into a Career in STEM will take place on Saturday, June 5, from 12pm – 1.30pm, EST.
In this special daytime edition of the STEM Night series – hosted virtually by the New York Hall of Science – we will explore different pathways to get into a career in STEM (that is, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
Hear from some early to mid-career professionals about some of their successes, failures, and challenges they faced as they got into their STEM career. Join us as we talk to computer programmers, engineers, researchers and more – and ask them for advice and tips!
This event will feature two career panels featuring STEM professionals, as well as Explainers and Alumni from NYSCI’s Science Career Ladder program. Youth participants will be given the opportunity to connect directly with industry professionals through breakout rooms centered around interactive Q&A sessions.
Some topics we will cover include:
