This month: Delaware Tech STEM Expos, where kids discover new paths

Three expos on three campuses introduce young students to careers they may not even know exist.

At the TEDxWilmington “Education Possible” event in early February, cofounder of New York On Tech Jessica Santana talked about growing up in Brooklyn, never knowing that a career in tech was a possibility for Latino kids like her. She didn’t realize it until she was in college — too late, when many disadvantaged kids don’t go to college.

Events like Delaware Tech’s trio of STEM Expos every spring, now in its fifth year — are aimed at middle-school and high-school students who may or may not know that there are many opportunities for them in STEM fields. Some of those fields have a shortage of skilled applicants to choose from, virtually guaranteeing a well-paying job for students who study those fields.

The first DTCC STEM Expo will be at the Georgetown campus on March 15 from 5:30–7:30 p.m. at the Jason Technology Center Gymnasium. On March 22, from 5:30–8 p.m., the Expo will be at the Stanton campus in the Stanton Gymnasium.

These are free events, no registration required. Click here for directions and further details.
