Local high school students interested in pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics can attend a free career event next week at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia.
The annual STEM Career Expo will be held April 23 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the atrium of Fermilab’s Wilson Hall.
The event aims to connect high school students interested in STEM careers with professionals who can provide one-on-one advice, including Fermilab scientists and engineers, as well as representatives from local companies and research organizations.
Careers that will be represented include: astrophysicist, biologist, chemical engineer, electrical engineer, environmental scientist, food scientist, geologist, nuclear engineer and physicist.
Five panel discussions will be held on STEM topics with question-and-answer sessions. Students can visit ed.fnal.gov/programs/careerfair.
