This STEM Teacher Roundtable will focus on pathways to STEM careers and opportunities in the Shenandoah Valley. Each speaker will talk about what they do, their STEM journey, advice for students to be successful in their STEM field, and any opportunities for students or teachers with the company or organization.  After the presentations, we will open the floor to discussion, allowing the teachers to ask specific questions to our speakers or the panel as a whole. Discussion will focus on STEM issues and be along the lines of exciting students to STEM, girls and minorities in STEM, and challenges facing STEM teachers in the classroom. Following the panel discussion, there will be time for questions and networking.
 
** All attendees will receive a Certificate of Attendance **
