Minneapolis STEM Expo
February 5, 2020 – Over 2,000 8th graders in the Minneapolis Public School District got the opportunity to learn about technical careers. Business and industry from all sectors came together to engage and talk with these young people about potential careers. Many of these careers the youth might not have ever heard of or ever knew that could be a career.
Many of the businesses and organizations that were present had hands on activities for the middle school students to participate in. These activities were there to help showcase what the career field might be like; utilizing tools or technology that is commonly used.
The 9th Annual Minneapolis STEM Expo was held at the Minneapolis Convention Center. It is a way for all 8th graders in the Minneapolis School District to learn about technical careers.
