The Roanoke STEM Teacher Roundtable will explore STEM careers and opportunities in the Roanoke Valley. Teacher Roundtables serve as a forum to connect representatives from industry, academia, and STEM organizations with teachers to create awareness of STEM career fields, the job skills required for the 21st century STEM worker, and programs for students to explore STEM subjects and career paths. Speakers will also discuss teacher professional development opportunities and ways to connect with STEM professionals in the community.
