Well, what if I told you that you can become a super hero?!? Do you remember the COVID pandemic? There were multiple STEM careers involved in developing, producing, and supplying a vaccine so that people could be protected from the virus and return to normal life – I would call that heroic! This is just one of the many examples where STEM careers are definitely super heroes! Please join us to learn all of the many ways that you could have a positive impact on, and possibly even save, the world through a STEM career.
